Agartala, Apr 14: France is exploring the possibilities of investment in different sectors in North-East following the withdrawal of Restricted Area Permits (RAP), Consul General of French consulate in Kolkata Jean-Louis Rysto said today (Apr 14).

After the formulation of ''Look East'' policy and withdrawal of Restricted Area Permits (RAC) from different parts of North-East, France has been exploring possibilities of investments in Agro sector, tourism, hydel power, medicinal plants, mining and railways, Rysto told reporters.

"I would have not come here unless there was any possibilities of investment," he told reporters here.

A three-member delegation including 2nd counselor to French ambassador, Sonia Barbry yesterday visited the industrial growth centre at Bodhjungnagar near here and consulted with chairman of Tripura Industrial Development Corporation (TIDC) Pabitra Kar and industrialists of the state.

Today the delegation left for Pencharthal, a tribal inhabited area in North Tripura district, about 185 km from here to see the celebration of the three-day long Bijhu festival of Chakma tribes.

"This would be an wonderful idea to be in the festival. I guess the foreign tourists from Europe including France would get good deal of interests in live and vibrant cultural exposure here," Rysto said.
