Moreover, the country is also committed to new important measures such as the standardization of the indirect taxation (Goods and Services Tax) which came into effect on July 1, 2017 as well as the reform of bankruptcy law to improve the ease of doing business in India (ranked 100th out of 188 countries according to the World Bank in 2018 and with an improvement of 30 places in a year).

India is a growing market for our French companies with a potential to generate employment and is a huge added value and potential; in services, in the manufacturing sector and in high growth sectors like technology, software, energy and urban development. "Already over 400 French companies are in India, there is a potential for many more to come and develop business ties here," said Sophie Clavelier, Senior Trade & Investment Commissioner for India based in New Delhi.
French companies are looking forward to forging many partnerships and trade ties with their Indian counterparts in the public and private domain and this State Visit will be a huge opportunity to capitalise on for both parties.
