Emmanuel Macron, the chief guest at this year's Republic Day parade, on Friday announced measures to ensure that more Indian students study in France. 

He said that France has an ambitious target of having over 30,000 students by 2030. Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter), he wrote: "30,000 Indian students in France in 2030. It's a very ambitious target, but I am determined to make it happen."

Macron went on to explain how France will help the students, stating that non-French speaking students would be able to attend French universities through the establishment of foreign classrooms.

"We are expanding the Alliances Francaises network by adding more language learning centres. We are setting up international classes so that students who don't necessarily speak French can enrol in our universities," he added.

"Last but not least, we will facilitate the visa process for any former Indian students who studied in France," the French President added.
