The Global Platform for Collaboration

New Delhi [India], August 30: With the focused agenda of bringing together businesses and social leaders from Asia, the Middle East and Africa on a global platform for mutual welfare and collaboration, AsiaOne Media Group organized the 14th Edition of Asia-Africa Business and Social Forum: Awards & Business E-summit on 27th August’21 at Zoom Digital Platform. The one-day mega E-Summit was joined by esteemed dignitaries from India, Singapore, Dubai, Thailand, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Thailand, China/Hong Kong, Myanmar, Cambodia, the UAE, Oman, Malaysia, the USA, the UK, Nigeria, and South Africa where key leaders from business and government sectors congregated to facilitate fresher avenues of economic cooperation, networking and investment opportunities in the Asian, Middle Eastern and the African regions. Once again, AsiaOne Media Group created a unique and unmatched platform where highly intellectual and insightful thoughts were built on the significance of collaboration and cooperation, especially in the light of the pandemic.

The Summit was organized by AsiaOne magazine and URS Media, which is rapidly emerging as the Number 1 international media company towards the cause of business, political and social issues in entire Asia & Middle East, thus supporting not only the Indian Government’s initiatives such as Skilling India, Digitizing India, and Incredible India but also supporting United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and World Health Organization’s targets. Darwin Platform Group of Companies (DPGC) was the Preferred Partner for the entire Summit and Awards.

The 14th Edition of Asia-Africa Business & Social Forum 2021 highlighted the envious social and economic progress of Asia, the Middle East and Africa. At the same time, the forum emerged as a spectacular platform of intense discussions indulging some of the great leaders of our time – Union Government Ministers, Ambassadors, Business Owners, Investors, Government & Royal Dignitaries and professionals like CEOs, CFOs, CTOs, CHROs, from the Indian Subcontinent, South Asia and the Middle East.

Mr. Rajat Raj Shukal, the Global Head & Principal Partner, AsiaOne magazine and URS Media Consulting P.L., opened the forum and talked about how Asia and Africa have to come together in the post-COVID-19 times to collaborate for convergence and creating a New Renaissance which should focus on creating more new businesses which are technology-enabled as this would generate more Business Leaders from Asian, Middle Eastern and African regions and generate more employment opportunities and add a contribution to the GDP and grow the economies. AsiaOne and Darwin Platform Group of companies – the preferred partner for the 14th Edition Asia-Africa Business and Social Forum 2021, would come together and initiate a TV reality show where 40 million higher education students first from India would be reached out for scouting their business ideas and then industry experts would make a three-tier selection. A few inspiring ideas will be seed funded and created into ventures, and this would first start as an initiative from India, being called “Let’s Make Great India Again” as we are the largest youth in current demographics. Then further, a similar platform would be initiated in other countries of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Another important aspect he spoke about was mental health, especially for youth, who may not get good employment opportunities in COVID-19 since many businesses have slowed down. And a similar message was also broadcasted by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who was also awarded the AsiaOne COVID-19 Commitment Award 2020-21. Gurudev spoke about mental health as one of the biggest challenges that the world is facing today and was pleased to participate and hear that 400 awardees were being recognised at the forum and were being motivated in these unprecedented times.

The Forum witnessed eloquent speeches by some of India’s popular Union Government Ministers. They talked about the massive developmental works being undertaken in varied sectors under the exemplary leadership of the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. They lauded his clarion call of turning adversity into opportunity. They appreciated the various reforms and measures adopted by the Government to facilitate the Ease of Doing Business and promote Self Reliance and Entrepreneurship. The Summit saw messages and Live Broadcast by the Indian Union and State Government Ministers such as Shri Anurag Singh Thakur, Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Shri Kiren Rijiju, Shri Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Shri Ramdas Athawle, Sushri Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti and others.

The Forum also showcased rich and varied insights from Ambassadors of Asian and African countries who talked about the measures for increasing trade and mutual cooperation between the nations and promoted their countries as tourism destinations by highlighting their unique features. For instance, Her Excellency Dr. Tizita Mulugeta Yiman, the Ambassador of Ethiopia to India, urged the participating leaders to visit Ethiopia, which offers all-time favourable weather and friendly hospitability of friendly people. She also shared some rich and exciting facts about Ethiopia – the largest coffee producer in Africa. She took pride that “Ethiopia is the only non-colonized country of Africa and was the first one from Africa to establish diplomatic relations with India in 1948.” She expressed satisfaction with the “strong trade and investment relations between the two countries which date back to the 6th century” and cherished the cordial diplomatic ties between the two nations.

Similarly, Dr. Kriengsak Chareonwongsak, the Honorary Consul General of Zimbabwe in Thailand, talked about his four decades-long academic and business association with Africa and expressed hope in the mutual collaboration of Asia and Africa for a better world. The South African High Commissioner in IndiaHis Excellency Mr. J.S. Ndebele projected South Africa as a country that derives its strength in challenging and transforming itself continually. He was delighted to share that India and South Africa are some of the largest trading partners. He also expressed great intent to strengthen further the bilateral ties and trade between the two nations.
