Q.

Some time ago there was a report that some of the leading Indian business groups are planning to enter into farming Africa in a big way. Later there is no news about it. Did it turnout to be a mere publicity stunt of some of the Indian business groups? Your views?

It could be the publicity stunt or paving a way for Corporate Farming in India..

Corporate Farming is always based on Comparative Trade which India has suffered alot in the history, such as indigo farming.

It was more of a publicity stunt rather than any factual one as most such groups do so to get media & public attention towards them!!
