Bilateral trade between India, France below potential: Prez Kovind


President Ram Nath Kovind has said, India’s strategic ties with France have been expanding not just in traditional sectors of defence, space and civil nuclear energy but also in the emerging areas of counter-terrorism and maritime and cyber-security.

French President Emmanuel Macron met Mr Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhavan yesterday. Welcoming the French President, Mr Kovind said, India accords high priority to its strategic partnership with France.

He said, bilateral trade between the two country is about 11 billion dollar, which is far below potential. He stressed on the need to diversify the trade basket and look for new avenues to boost trade.

Mr Kovind said, India commends France’s efforts in the global fight against climate change. The President said, the two countries stand together in this endeavour. Mr Kovind also expressed hope that this alliance will be able to make a mark globally in bridging the gap in affordable and clean energy.
