Successful panel discussion on the "Role of technology and innovation in Indian transport"

Julian HOARAU - 02/09/16

 

A panel discussion was held at the Residence of the French Ambassador in New Delhi on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 on issues related to innovation and technology in the transport sector in India. The event was an initiative by the French company BlaBlaCar, a leader in long distance car-pooling and now has over 3 million users across the country and established in India since January 2015. This event, organized by Business France, brought together one platform more than 50 participants: senior Indian government officials, CEOs from the public and private sector, representatives of the Indian government (Ministry of Transport & Planning Commission) and the French business community. Important topics such as urban mobility, inter-city connectivity, multi modal transportation, safety of travellers, environmental protection and the regulatory environment were covered in the discussions.

 

This discussion also highlighted French creativity, especially the innovative solutions offered by the startup BlaBlaCar. This event, organized within the framework of the Creative France campaign currently being promoted in India, has concretely demonstrated the French know -how in the areas of innovation and transport and their willingness find solutions, just like BlaBlaCar, with the aim of supporting India in its implementation of long term, sustainable  & innovative solutions in the area of transport.
