Addressing the media here on Thursday evening, Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said that both leaders expressed satisfaction at the growth of bilateral trade.

India-South Africa trade stood at a little over $4.1 billion till the end of August last year.

“Among the areas the Prime Minister said the South African companies should be exploring in India are defence, food processing and health insurance,” Gokhale said.
