Speaking on the second day of the Paris Air Show, the Ambassador said that he is looking forward to supporting all the efforts by India in the establishment of long-term and win-win cooperation in the aerospace and defence sectors.

A strong bond developed over the years
Ziegler added that French industrial facilities in India, big and small, which France is strongly supporting, are indeed flourishing. He sees this as a good news, especially because more and more Indian companies are also investing in France.

The Ambassador further noted that France is India’s oldest strategic partner and a significant one for defence and aerospace equipment, not just as a supplier but as a true partner.

As a matter of fact, Make in India has been a reality for the French industry for many years, particularly for defence equipment such as helicopters, missiles, submarines, aircraft engines, and others, he said.

He further said that this strategic partnership was enhanced even further by French President Emmanuel Macron’s state visit to India in March last year.
