Description :
"Mr. Minister,
Monsieur le Consul,
Mr. Chairman,
Mesdames et Messieurs,
It’ s a great pleasure for me to be here with you to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Indian-French Chamber of Commerce. 40 years of building relations between our businesses and our countries certainly is a very impressive achievement, and one to be proud of. I am also very impressed to be in one of the most attractive and business-friendly cities in the world. Bangalore is a vibrant city, a world leader in information technology exports, and I know from experience that many French entrepreneurs are looking keenly at India, and more particularly Bangalore.
You have chosen the theme of “Les années folles” – which is very interesting for at least two reasons. First, that period was an extraordinary one. It was a decade of strong prosperity and artistic creativity. It was the beginning of mass consumption in Western countries and the first step towards a rising middle-class. However, this era came to an end with the 1929 financial crisis followed by the great depression. I think this serves as a reminder that today more than ever, we need to support growth and give people more opportunities to do business globally. But we also need to be aware that sustainable growth is only possible if we are reasonable, if we regulate effectively and in a balanced manner and if we can support win-win partnerships between countries.
The new political majority in France, La République En Marche! – Going forward! is liberal, pro-business and boldly European. The French people who live abroad embody this new way of thinking. I do believe that our French community abroad should play a more important role. There are 3 million of us and we have the same electoral weight as Paris. There are more of us than the French people living in overseas territories (Outremer)! In this picture, the French business community has a key role with 30 000 French companies abroad which contribute 20 % of jobs in France. In the globalization process, our country is made stronger by the vitality of our community abroad and has the assets to be successful.
I really believe that President Macron’s new leadership means that France is back! Being back means playing a new role on the world stage but also understanding the new balance of powers. India is already a giant, and will certainly be a superpower in the coming years. This is why Prime Minister Modi was one of the first global leaders to be hosted at the Elysée Palace (the French Presidency) by our newly elected President.
We have the opportunity to build an even closer relationship between our countries. Of course, we want to develop French businesses in India, but we are also open to Indian investors and businesses in France.
France has already taken some major steps to attract new investors, especially in terms of the labor market and tax system. Besides, the French government wants to streamline the administration to assist French entrepreneurs and businesses worldwide. We want to modernize our approach and be more efficient. We already have a large-scale diplomatic network which is a tremendous asset coupled with awell-developed business network with the International Chamber of Commerce, Business France (our State Business promotion agency) and Atout France (for tourism).

Furthermore, our Minister of European & Foreign Affairs has set two major goals:
Simplify: clearly setting one goal, one line of action and one leading stakeholder to achieve it.
Be more efficient: promote actions that have a tangible impact on the French economy.
One of our main goals is also to establish a single client interface and organize the various existing agencies into one “French team”. Moreover, we need to develop specific assistance mechanisms for French entrepreneurs operating abroad. Our Minister is going to make a proposal for a new international promotion of economic policy this December.
I want you to know that I am here to listen, to help and to give feedback to our Government about the reality on the ground. So, don’t hesitate to send me concrete and innovative proposals to make our policies more effective. I really believe in a new way of making political decisions. You are best placed to know what you really need. My ambition is to help connect your local knowledge and experience with our decision makers.
I know that we can really do better together. I also know that we share a common desire to enhance relations between France and India. Globalization is an fantastic opportunity for our 2 great countries to further solidify our already flourishing relationhip.

At a time were the model is increasingly called into questions, our cooperation and our steadfast belief in each other can be the spark that can make globalization great again
Thank you! "
