India's now rapidly expanding economy and the concurrent re-assertion of its strategic global importance have led to its designation as a new 'Asian Driver', second only in importance to China. African governments are beginning to respond to the advances of India and the emerging powers. Of importance in this developing relationship is, on the one hand, how India sees and promotes itself in Africa and what its economic, strategic and diplomatic priorities are. On the other hand, African governments are not idle by-standers. This chapter investigates African responses to India's business practices, political stance and ideological disposition and to the changing global order to which India makes an ever greater contribution.
