French automobile manufacturer Renault is keen to set up a manufacturing plant in Pakistan, French Senator Pascal Allizard said Wednesday.
Senator Allizard, who is in Pakistan with two other French parliamentarians, met Board of Investment Chairperson Haroon Sharif. The French parliamentarians were given a presentation about the areas where the French companies could invest in Pakistan.
The main purpose of the visit was to strengthen the bilateral and business relations between the two countries, Senator Allizard said, adding that the French government will organise a seminar on the Gwadar Port in Paris with the Pakistani embassy. French port companies would be invited to it, he said.
The French parliamentary delegation will also visit Karachi and Gwadar. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project has a lot of interest not only for France, but all of Europe, the senator said.
He said the Pak-French Parliamentary Group would also organise a meeting with French companies for transformation and processing of milk in Pakistan.
Pakistan is the third-largest milk producer of the world, but it had no allied industries to transform the milk, he said.
