The government of India, in collaboration with Telecommunications Consultants India Limited(TCIL) has implemented the Pan-African e-Network Project and connected India with 48 African Union member countries, including Madagascar, with a satellite and fiber optic network so as to share India’s expertise in education and medicine field.
