Energising ties: the politics of oil

Abstract: India’s growing energy needs are a key driver of commercial and diplomatic initiatives with Africa. It is also an area in which competition is rife with China and the US, but also other global players. The article details developments and production in Africa’s energy sector and suggests ways that India could improve its relationship with the continent in this regard.
