India, France To Promote People-To-People Exchanges, French Ambassador Says

"One of the key areas where we would like to work more in future is people-to-people exchanges," French Ambassador to India Alexandre Ziegler said.

PANAJI:  India and France will work on promoting people-to-people exchanges, which is one of the important areas in the strategic partnership between the two nations, French Ambassador to India Alexandre Ziegler has said.

The pillar of the bilateral relationship is the strategic partnership, he said.

"One of the key areas where we would like to work more in future is people-to-people exchanges. There is no point in talking about strategic partnership for next 50 years if you don't prepare the next generation," Mr Ziegler told PTI in an interview.

French President Emmanuel Macron, during his visit to India last week, had rolled out the red carpet for Indian youths, researchers and entrepreneurs, saying he would be proud if they made France their entry point to Europe and be their "long time strategic partner".

"During his visit to India, our president stressed on educational cooperation, research, attracting more Indian students, French students...and I think this enhancement of people-to-people exchanges will be one of the key issues of our relationship in future," the ambassador said.

"That is the agreement on mutual recognition of our university degrees which will increase an influx of students, either French or Indian, visiting partner countries," he said.
