V.I.E contract in India corresponds to the needs of exporters and is now more flexible

Purva Marwaha - 13-mai-2016 13:00:43

V.I.E contract in India corresponds to the needs of exporters and is now more flexible Extended to two years from January 2016, the maximum duration of contracts are now perfectly suited to the requirements of the Indian market. It’s official: the annual quota of V.I.E (International French Volunteership) in India has increased to 250 (against 50 previously) and the maximum length of stay extended to two years (instead of one year). Announced in Paris in April 2015 during the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the new terms were approved after the state visit of François Hollande in January 2016 and are now effective. According to Thibaut Fabre, Director of Business France India, it is an opportunity to grab for the French companies: "It is now very easy to use this beneficial device that combines all the assets to succeed in India: a flexible HR formula, competitive and that can rely on highly qualified profiles. An Indian market where the business environment requires a long-term investment, V.I.E becomes one of the most appropriate tools to put its commercial development over time. " India’s thriving economy This relaxation takes place in a conducive environment: seventh world economy, becoming the most populous country in the world (2025), India has the highest rate of growth of the BRICS: + 7.5% are expected in 2016, according to IMF data. "More than ever, this country-continent becomes a land of conquest for French companies. It is all the more attractive and is positioning itself as a platform to export in Asia and beyond, "says Thibaut Fabre. Talented, creative and autonomous The profiles of the most sought V.I.E are those young graduates specializing in engineering, finance, project management, implementation of quality policy or commercial development. "Candidates should also know exercise of autonomy, creativity and a strong ability to adapt. It is crucial for success in this unique market overseas export, "says Thibaut Fabre. This program, better known by the companies also allows them to sustain their presence after a first commercial success. The young graduate is both a local support and a gateway to the headquarters, said Business France. This is what motivated the engine manufacturer Leroy Somer. For Leroy Somer, the V.I.Es are a nursery of talent involved in international development: "The V.I.E allows better communication with our factories in France. They provide the relay with local teams and help us to realize the projects we could sometimes not start without them. " If the company does not have its own offices yet, the V.I.E may receive a direct debit via ad hoc platforms, such as the Chamber of Commerce Franco-Indian. These accommodations make life easier for the company and is an asset for French SMEs in their efforts to export.   Six key areas to target the Indian market - Sustainable development: renewable energy, smart cities, waste treatment, ... - Health: hospitals, modernization of equipment, access to care ... - Automotive: reminder, India is the 6th world producer of cars - Food: equipment, packaging, storage, ... - Consumer goods: textiles, leather goods, luxury ... - Internet and digital e-commerce, Internet of Things, solutions and services on the internet and mobile telephony, FinTech, RetailTech, e-Health: a rapidly growing sector, ...

Peugeot plans to re-enter India by 2021

Purva Marwaha - 22-avr.-2016 11:47:05

  French car company Peugeot has set its eyes on the Indian car market and plans to enter here by 2018. The car maker plans to get into a partnership with an Indian company to start its new foray in the sub-continent.  Peugeot, which is expected to make  India  its manufacturing base for domestic and export markets, is likely to launch its products before the end of 2021. Peugeot’s Indian entry is considered as a part of the company’s aggressive ‘Push to Pass’ growth plan for the period 2016-2021. In 2014, the French carmaker formed a new ‘India-Pacific’ business zone comprising India,  SAARC  countries, Japan, Korea,  Australia  and New Zealand. The company is looking at launching only new generation cars in India and not those which are at the end of their production cycles.  For its Indian venture, the automaker wants to focus on frugal research expenditure and rigorous control over production costs as well as fixed costs in the price sensitive Indian market. Peugeot wants to reach an average of four percent recurring operating margin in 2016-2018, and target six percent by 2021. It wants to establish itself as a big brand and accordingly plans a blitzkrieg of products from its global range, notably the plug-in hybrid cars and autonomous connected vehicles. This will be Peugeot’s second entry into the sub-continent. In its first innings in India, which ended late 1997, the company had partnered with Premier Automobiles.   Source: Business Standard-  http://bit.ly/1U8lfgl

URGO will start its operation from Chennai and in future it will take to other parts of the country. ’’We will now benefit from URGO’s global network in serving newer international markets. The partnership will enable us to access URGO Group’s global expertise in the areas of clinical research, manufacturing, regulatory and marketing,’’ Mr Sridharan said. He also said cost effective products will be provided to diabetic wounded patients. Mr Sridharan further added both the companies will dedicate their efforts to work hand in hand with public and private hospitals to set higher standards for wound care treatments.
