What is the France India Foundation?

The France India Foundation (FIF) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to strengthening Franco-Indian partnerships across sectors by facilitating human exchange and meaningful conversation.

​​

The FIF has the support of prominent cultural figures, business leaders and diplomats. As one of 4 core chapters of the Fondation France Asie, the FIF will focus on the India region and work closely with the FFA leadership to execute its vision in India.

Strengthening Indo-French Ties

The centre of the world economy continues to shift towards Asia, within which India is emerging as an influential presence.

 

Although France and India have a strategic partnership that has deepened since 1998, knowledge about India among public and private decision makers in France remains insufficient, and while there is a favourable image of France in India, it is largely superficial and outdated.

 

France and India have the potential to have a strong and mutually beneficial partnership, with the nations already engaging across sectors such as defence, aerospace, industry, education, sustainability. President Macron and Prime Minister Modi have committed to preparing for the future by deepening their cooperation and broadening their partnership to new domains.

 

In order to cultivate these ties, it is crucial to have relationships of trust between French and Indian leaders of tomorrow.

The Fondation France-Asie

Inspired by the successful experience of the France China Foundation, the France-Asia Foundation promotes exchanges between French and Asian civil societies. It encourages dialogue and the development of new partnerships between France and Asia, in the service of shared values ​​of friendship between peoples, humanism, co-development and peace. Headquartered in Paris, the FFA has country chapters in China and India, and will soon have a presence in Japan, South Korea, Indonesia and Singapore.
