Trade between India and Africa is set to increase to $90 billion by 2015, leaders at an India-Africa meeting in New Delhi have said.

Organisers of the India-Africa Forum Summit, which involves 600 African delegates and more than 500 business delegates from India, said that over 250 projects worth around $30 billion were in discussion.
