Inaugurating the convocation, Hon'ble Vice Chancellor, Dr. Kim Menezes congratulated the students for successfully completing their learning journey at the institution. She also welcomed the Chief Guest, Mr. Puneet Roy Kundal, IFS, Additional Secretary, Eastern and Southern Africa Division, Ministry of External Affairs.

At GD Goenka University, we strive for the holistic development of students, enabling them to make significant contributions to their respective domains and countries.

Highlighting the strategic relationship between India and Africa in education, Mr. Kundal said, "In line with the Prime Minister's vision of Viksit Bharat by 2047 and our aim to be Vishwa Bandhu, friend of the world, your presence here reflects India's commitment to acceptance and openness towards welcoming people. We have more than 23000 students from Africa who studied in India, including many African leaders today, and I see no reason why this gathering here will not be in that role in another 15-20 years from today.''
