Purva Marwaha - 13-juil.-2018 08:29:30
Friday, 13 July 2018     Agreement will enhance cooperation, trade and investment  A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka, the Export Development Board of Sri Lanka and Business France today.   BOI Chairman Dumindra Ratnayake, EDB Chairperson Indira Malwatte and South Asia Head of Business France Sophie Clavelier signed the MOU on behalf of the respective organizations.   BOI is the investment promotion agency of the Sri Lankan Government and functions as the central facilitation point for investors with the purpose of improving Sri Lanka’s investment climate.   The SLEDB is Sri Lanka’s premier organization for the promotion and development of exports. Business France, an agency of the French Government, has the task of developing the internationalization of French companies as well as promoting the image of France in the world and promoting foreign investments in France. Also participating in this event was Ambassador of France to Sri Lanka and the Maldives Jean-Marin Schuh as well as senior officials of the BOI, EDB and Business France.   BOI Chairman Dumindra Ratnayake welcomed the other signatories to the MOU.  He stated: “This MOU is a very positive development since it will help to increase in the future investment in areas such as manufacturing and infrastructure. It also has to be seen in connection with the FTAs that Sri Lanka has entered into with India, Pakistan and Singapore and will sign in the future with China. These FTAs give market access to goods produced in Sri Lanka.” He added: “Another important development is the Port City with many opportunities for construction and other investment in the future.”   Ratnayake added that the agreement would help to strengthen relations and facilitate trade and investment with France in the future. EDB Chairperson Indira Malwatte stated: “We have had a very positive meeting with Business France. France is the sixth largest market for Sri Lankan exports to the European Union.”   She added: “Sri Lanka is to launch the National Export Strategy and this will also generate greater interest in our products. Currently we are promoting ship and boatbuilding, spices to be used in the manufacture of perfumes and cosmetics and of course the IT sector. It is our decision to focus just on three sectors for the moment and these are sectors where France is very strong.”   Head of Business France South Asia Sophie Clavelier stated: “We had a very positive meeting and I am excited to sign this MOU on behalf of the CEO of Business France.  We must ensure that this MOU must live and must work together in developing certain niche areas that Sri Lanka has to offer. One area which I would like to see develop is the Agro Sector where Sri Lanka has a lot of potential.”   She added that a country such as Sri Lanka should not look at competing with giant economies such as India but that “Sri Lanka should be developing niche sectors that are quality orientated. We should not look at large but at quality and high-end sectors.” Ambassador of France to Sri Lanka and the Maldives Jean-Marin Schuh also stated: “The MOU will enhance economic co-operation between Sri Lanka and France. We are currently focusing on expanding French exports as well as Sri Lankan investment in France.”   He added: “There are certain areas where l see many possibilities. For example, the French side could be interested in developing Sri Lankan ports as France has many leading shipping companies. I also see opportunities in the development of tourism.  This is an area where France has considerable experience and in 2020 our country will attract 120 million tourists in the course of the year. Other areas that are very promising are co-operation in the financial sector and also we are currently involved in the development of mini-dairies.”    Under the agreement, the parties are to exchange information and provide mutual support for the benefit of their clients and also to promote economic growth in both Sri Lanka and France.  In addition, the MOU seeks to encourage each party to promote the image of the other country and support FDI from its nationals to the other country. Another clause of the MOU stipulates that the party will exert their influence for the promotion of commercial and industrial partnership between French and Sri Lankan companies. The MOU also includes a commitment for the provision of commercial information and for assisting each other in organising fairs, seminars and business missions and co-operation in areas such as publications and creating awareness on investment environment, policies and regulations.   Each party is to provide the other with available and relevant information on initiatives with the purpose of increasing business for French and Sri Lankan companies in each other’s markets.   Furthermore, periodically meetings will be organised whenever it is necessary to evaluate the development of joint activities or future co-operation between the parties.   It is also important to note that each party is responsible for its own costs of operation. The agreement will be in effect for a period of two years and would be automatically renewed unless notice is given by one of the parties. The MOU also covers intellectual property rights and the use of trademarks and logos of their signatories. There is also a mechanism for consultation between the signatories of the MOU. The MOU augurs well for future expansion of tourism, trade and investment from France to Sri Lanka.

The “French Tech Tour to India 2017”, a platform to bridging the French and Indian Tech ecosystems

Purva Marwaha - 30-oct.-2017 10:57:25
Business France, the Trade & Investment Commission of France in India, is organizing, with several stakeholders and partners, the second edition of the “French Tech Tour to India”, a multi-purpose and multi-format platform to run over Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Hyderabad & Bangalore from the 13 th  to the 17 th  of November 2017.   The “French Tech Tour to India 2017” will consist in an immersive mission to India for 9 innovative “French Tech” startups and SMEs and 1 of France and the World biggest car makers . The program for these companies will include customize business meetings with Indian start-ups, investors, partners and clients as well as pitch sessions and curated networking cocktails across the 4 cities. The first edition of the event in 2016 pitch sessions and networking and networking event was a tremendous success and recorded a footfall of more than 150 participants in each city.   France is eager to develop strong partnerships with the Indian start-ups ecosystems.  Therefore, the “French Tech Tour to India 2017” will also include meetings with several incubators in the 4 cities, and more specifically  T-Hub in Hyderabad , Indian leading start-ups incubator, and one the biggest in the World. The “French Tech Tour to India 2017” will finally have a strong participation  at the Bangalore ITE.Biz 2017  (Bangalore, 16th to 18 th  of November 2017), with the objective of strengthening reciprocal awareness between the French and Indian Tech ecosystems, and of promoting France as a leading Innovation and Business Hub in Europe for Indian Tech Companies. In the years to come, Business France looks forward to take these initiatives to greater scale.  The French Tech initiative fits in the with the goals and objectives of the “Startup India” and “Digital India” initiatives  by the Government of India. We hope that this spirit of reciprocal learning and collaboration between India and France strengthens in the following years.     *     *     *     *     * For some years now, the French Tech ecosystem has enjoyed a steady and strong development, driven by a new generation of entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, designers and other talented people. Like India, France has emerged as a leading Startup Power, home to vibrant Tech Hubs and talents, and imbued with a strong entrepreneurial culture. With 100,000 Engineers trained yearly, 6,000+ Tech startups, 200+ Tech startup incubators / accelerators, 100+ VC funds active, more and more large companies and Mid-Caps involved into startup initiatives, not to mention our Innovation Clusters, France stands among the leading ecosystems globally when considering Tech-related Entrepreneurship and Innovation; as ascertained by the fact that France led -for the 6th consecutive year- the race in the “Deloitte Fast 500 2015 EMEA” ranking with 87 laureates. The “French Tech” is benefiting from both Software and Hardware-centric capabilities. Also, while France has been historically known for Telecommunications and Media technologies for instance, the country has nurtured a growing number of World market leaders emerging in domains such as Big Data & Analytics (with Success Stories such as Criteo, Scality, Talend or Teads…), IoT and Connected Devices (over 25% of all startups exhibiting at the CES 2016 were French), eCommerce and Sharing /On-demand Economy, or BioTech and MedTech (No. 2 in the World for BioTech and No. 1 for MedTech IPOs over 2011-2015). In addition to public supportive programs, private initiatives such as the StationF to open in early 2017 in Paris (consisting in the retrofit of the Halle Freyssinet, to make it the largest business incubator worldwide with over 1,000 startups spread over 33,000 sqm), shall contribute to sustain this dynamic. Also noteworthy is the fact that many MNCs (Cisco, Facebook, General Electric, Google, Huawei, Intel Corporation, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung…) have implemented R&D and Innovation centers in France and are increasing the scale of their operations in this domain.   The “French Tech Tour to India” finds its origin in the statement that with over 5,000 and 6,000 Tech startups respectively, and many large corporates involved in Open Innovation and Acceleration programs, India and France both belong to the Top 5 of the Tech startup ecosystems in the world. Yet, further initiatives need to be developed to exploit the true potential for synergies and value co-creation between the 2 Startup Powers. Hence, in addition This French Tech Tour to India 2017 is part of the larger  French Tech  initiative spearheaded by the French Government and associated public and private stakeholders to promote innovation and the growth of startup ecosystems in France. These initiatives look at bridging the French and India Tech ecosystems, creating reciprocal awareness between the two ecosystems and enabling participating French Tech startups and SMEs to find their future partners and clients and develop in the Indian market   About the “French Tech” initiative: Launched in 2013, the “French Tech” is an initiative spearheaded by the French Government in association with public and private stakeholders in order to nurture the densification, the growth and internationalization of Tech startup ecosystems in France, and to accrue the positioning of France as a leading European Innovation and Business Hub towards any Tech company. It consists in: -  a set of programs (grants to entrepreneurs, access of entrepreneurs to IT and research resources, fund of funds, acceleration fund, “French Tech Ticket”, etc.) designed to achieve these objectives; - networks of labeled ecosystems located throughout France; - a brand and logo, this pink rooster to which any “French Tech” entrepreneur associates itself. The "French Tech" eventually refers to all the stakeholders and individuals contributing to the Tech startup ecosystem in France or abroad. The initiative is sector-agnostic and relates not only to the Digital economy or ICTs, but also to BioTech, CleanTech, EdTech, FinTech, FoodTech, MedTech, etc. For further information, you can log on to the Website of the “French Tech” initiative:  http://bonjourlafrenchtech.com/   About Business France: Business France is the National Agency for the Internationalization of the French Economy, responsible for fostering the international expansion of French businesses as well as promoting and facilitating international investments in France. It promotes France’s companies, business image and nationwide attractiveness as an investment location, and also runs the V.I.E scheme (an international internship program).

ACTIA India to unveil latest End Of Line diagnostic solution for vehicles ever conceived in India

Purva Marwaha - 29-mars-2016 12:23:16
ACTIA India to unveil latest End Of Line diagnostic solution for vehicles ever conceived in India ACTIA India, a JV between ACTIA Automotive and DMG Finance & Investments, have recently unveiled their latest End Of Line (EOL) diagnostic solutions, developed for Renault, on their latest Kwid vehicle. This is the first time such a diagnostic solution is implemented in India automotive industry. In order to achieve this breakthrough, ACTIA India had to solve the main challenge of proposing a unique software suite combined to a hardware kit able to analyse diagnostic tests made on vehicles, at a cost efficient price. This achievement has been possible thanks to a “ jugaad innovation ” approach developed in collaboration with Renault, taking into account Renault technological legacy while processing the necessary adjustments and removing the superfluous aspects of the diagnostic. The unique software suite and the hardware kit enable manufacturers to treat diagnostic tests’ results in a simpler manner, which has a significant incidence on their operating costs. ACTIA India has strong expectations from the Indian market, as said by Mr. Pascal Perhirin, Business Development Manager, Off Highway Solutions and ex-CEO of ACTIA India: “ India is a highly dynamic market and the key words to enter this market are Innovation, quality and well-priced products. The latest EOL diagnostic delivered to Renault India makes us today capable of any kind of tailored diagnostic solutions, for all types of vehicles: cars, buses, trucks ”. In addition to this project, ACTIA India has also implemented a full End Of Line diagnostic solutions for Ashok Leyland in India, completed in 2013. The company can serve any kind of diagnostic requirement in the automotive industry: vehicle manufacturing (End Of line), repairing (VCI, aftersales tools) or maintenance operations (test lanes).
