Building A New India
Egis in India is elevated as one of the four pole (base home) countries for the group and has been given additional responsibility of managing Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal. The group wants to use India as a support for many services like transport planning and design, water, GIS, and building design. Egis in India also wants India to serve as a global base to run similar activities for the group in other region, such as Asia and Middle-East.
Egis is also a part of Smart Project Initiation Team (Smart PIT) formed by Department of Industrial Promotion & Policy (DIPP), Government of India, to brainstorm and prepare the blue print of the Smart City Project announced by the Government of India.
Egis in India has a fascinating journey and completed 20 years in India. In order to make its celebration more meaningful, Egis has organized a Leadership Summit. The aim of the summit was to showcase why Egis in India is a name to be reckoned with when it comes to planning, feasibility studies, detailed engineering, procurement assistance, construction supervision, or operation and maintenance for road and highways, railways, urban development, smart cities and ports.
Since the summit was just a few days after the visit of President of France to India on the occasion of Republic Day, H.E. Francois Richier, the Ambassador of France to India, graced the occasion with his presence as the Guest of Honour.
Speaking about the summit, François Richier commented, “I see more and more opportunities for France and India to collaborate, especially in infrastructure. France has the experience and expertise to enable India to develop its own world-class infrastructure, especially in smart cities, water management, cleaning of the Ganges, modern mass transportation sustainable infrastructure development, interlinking of rivers and trading, and others. Egis has been one of the key French players in the country playing that role so far as partners to Indian stakeholders and French delegations. I congratulate Egis team for an eventful 20 years in India and many more glorious years to come.”
