About Us Cultural Exchanges with Madagascar

Cultural  and Educational Relations 

While there had not been any significant exchange of cultural visits between the two countries in recent years,  Malagasies are familiar with Indian culture thanks to vibrant PIO community. Indian TV channels are included in the cable TV package by local cable operators.  Indian movies/TV serials, provided by the Embassy, have also been telecast on National TV. The famous TV serial Kabhi Kabhi is now being telecast on National TV. The cultural programmes, including film shows, organized by the Embassy in association with local organizations have been well attended.


At Embassy’s initiative, an EdCIL delegation visited Madagascar from 5 to 11 June 2013 and organized workshops/seminars in collaboration with the Universities of Antananarivo and Majunga, which were well attended and it is expected that many students would look at India as a destination for higher education.
