Mr Édouard Philippe, former Prime Minister of France and Mayor, Le Havre as Guest of Honour.

The event was held on 15th March 2023 at the Residence of France, Delhi. It brought together more than 150 CEOs and business leaders from the most prominent Indo-French companies in India across varied sectors like aerospace and defence, mobility, energy, consumer goods, agro, and luxury. The award ceremony also highlighted the VIE programme of the French Trade Commission and rewarded the best talents posted at French companies on VIE assignments in this region.

Speaking at the event, Mr Édouard Philippe, said, "The political relationship that France and India have built together is truly unique and a source of great pride. For it to continue to thrive in the future, it is also vital to bring our economies closer together. We need French and Indian entrepreneurs who invent, produce, create together. And this is what the members of the Indo-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry are doing every day, with the support of Team France Export. I want to thank them, because their Indo-French achievements are not only business success stories but also a key contribution to making the France-India strategic partnership stronger for the future."
