New Delhi: Citing the liberalized FDI regime in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday invited French companies to take advantage of ‘Make in India’ programme in various sectors.
Modi himself disclosed his plans to visit France in April when French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius called on him on Thursday, telling him that he looked forward to the visit.
The Prime Minister met French Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development Laurent Fabius who is on a visit to Delhi.
He is also scheduled to visit Germany in April to attend the Hanover fair besides having talks with Chancellor Angela Merkal and a visit to Russia is likely in July as a meeting of the BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) leaders is to be held there.
Modi conveyed condolences to the victims of recent terror attacks in France and expressed India’s solidarity with the people of France.
Other countries likely to be visited by Modi include Sri Lanka. The dates are likely to be finalized after new Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena’s official visit to India from February 15, his first foreign trip since assuming office in January.
