The Indo-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IFCCI) would be holding an ‘Indo-French Investment Conclave’ in city on Friday. About 30 French companies are directly participating with over 100 delegates from various other companies. French Ambassador Alexandre Ziegler would lead the delegation that includes multinationals like Alstom, AFD and Thales. This would be biggest investment summit in the region after ‘Advantage Vidarbha’ held in February 2013. Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, Union minister for road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari and energy minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule would be present. They would explain growing status of Nagpur and Vidarbha region and also appeal for investment here.
“Four to five memoranda of understanding (MoU) would be surely inked with number likely to increase if visitors like the venue and facilities offered in Mihan,” chief convener Prasanna Mohile told reporters. He was accompanied by VIA chairman Atul Pande and Vidarbha Economic Development Council (VEDC) chief Devendra Parekh.
To be held at Radisson Blu, the event would have panel discussions on topics like smart mobility, logistics and aerospace and defence, which would have participation of the industry leaders from the country. French giant Dassault has already set up a plant for manufacturing Falcon plane parts in Mihan.
“The visitors would be taken to Mihan-SEZ and given a presentation on facilities there. The panel discussion would begin from 3pm where IFCCI general secretary Payal Kanwar would make opening remarks followed by presentation on Vidarbha as an investment destination by Pande,” Mohile said.
