France indicates interest to help make Nagpur a ’smart city’

Thomas Ilhe - 16-sept.-2014 06:26:54

French Consul General for Western India Jean Raphael Peytregnet indicated that France had evinced interest in partnering with Nagpur to make it a ’smart city’ during his two-day visit in the city.  Accompanied by the French Trade Commissioner of Consulate General Matthieu Lefort, Peytregnet said that the basic objective would be to "explore possibilities" of co-operation in urban development. Since each city has a different requirement, there is nothing specific in mind, though tailor-made solutions could be offered, he said.   Peytregnet said that New Delhi would host a convention of architects later in November, when a French team would eventually visit Nagpur. Apart from exploring options in Mumbai and the national capital, they will also be urged to visit other Indian cities, he said.    Matthieu Lefort said there is also a focus on sectors like consumer goods, agriculture, automobiles, avionics and also tourism. Current investment by French companies in India stands at 15 billion Euros as against Indian investment in France which is at only 300 million Euros. The French government is keen to increase the figure by promoting Indian business proposals, he said. Source: PTI
