Indian Republic Day Chief Guest, 2019 –

In the current year 2019, the South African current and fifth President “Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa“ will be the honorable chief guest. During the G20 summit, the honorable prime minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi invited him to be the part of this auspicious day. This G20 summit was organized in Buenos Aires which is the capital of Argentina. According to the rumours and speculations, the African President is invited because India will also celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi. Mr. Gandhi spent several years in South Africa for studies and had friendly links with the personalities of South Africa.

This invitation will not only prove beneficial for both the nations but also the bonds of friendly relation will become stronger and many signing of deals can also take place.
