Celebrating France in Chennai

The French Consulate celebrated ‘National Day of France’ on July 14 at the Novotel Chennai OMR. Members from diplomatic communities, French nationals and other guests came together for the celebration.

The event began with the screening of an audio-visual which showed the Indo-French bond for the last 20 years. “Though it is my first July 14 (The National Day of France) in India, I feel, I have been here for long,” said Catherine Suard, Consul General of France in Puducherry. “The French President, Emanuel Macron, set the target that by the end of 2020, France should be able to attract at least 10,000 Indian students,” said Catherine.
