After holding bilateral talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Jaipur, French President Emmanuel Macron announced an “ambitious target” to invite 30,000 students to France by 2030.

Macron was the Chief Guest for India’s 75th Republic Day and arrived a day earlier in Jaipur on 25 January.

On Friday, 26 January, Macron shared on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter) to encourage Indian students to study in France and further strengthen the two countries' relations.

"French for All, French for a Better Future" is an initiative in collaboration with Alliance Françaises to learn French in public schools. The plan is to develop the network of Alliance Françaises with new centres for learning French.

International classes will be created to allow students who do not speak the language to join universities in France.

"India and France have so much to do together, now and in the future. We will achieve this with you, our young people, in exchange and cooperation, in trust, in friendship," he said on X.  

"Last but not least, we will facilitate the visa process for any former Indian students who studied in France. Coming to France means looking for excellence," he added in his statement.

At Amber Fort, Macron interacted with artisans and students. Macron firmly believed in consolidating the exceptional partnership (between India and France) to bring the youth together.

"It’s a very ambitious target, but I am determined to make it happen," said Emmanuel Macron on X.

Macron writes, "I come to celebrate and consolidate our exceptional partnership. First step: bringing our youth together. We have so much to do together!"
