Emmanuel Lenain, Ambassador of France to India, said, “Choose France Tour 2023 will bring together the amazing academic talent of Indian students, and France’s world-class institutes of learning. President Macron announced an ambitious goal of welcoming 30,000 Indian students to France by 2030. This decision is testament to our unshakable belief in the transformative influence of education. By opening our academic institutions to Indian minds, we are not only enriching our classrooms with diverse perspectives but also laying the foundation for cultural comprehension and lifelong friendship between our two nations.”
