We discussed about the priorities of India and the contribution of Schneider, access to energy, Digital India, manufacturing in India. I would say that 80 per cent of the discussion was about people and skilling people," Tricoire said.

He further added that, his company is handling the 28 factories in India.“More than 50 per cent of what we do in those factories is exported which proves very clearly that what we do in our factories is not only competitive for India but is absolutely competitive on the global scale," Tricoire said.
