The Indo-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IFCCI) has launched its representation in Chandigarh in order to increase collaboration between the two countries.

"Collaboration scopes are huge between our two countries and more particularly in this program as France is mastering in urban and infrastructure development," IFCCI President Pierre Behnam said in a statement today.

He said that a former IAS officer of Haryana, Vivek Atray, has been appointed as the IFCCI Representative based at Chandigarh, the joint capital of Punjab and Haryana.

Atray was previously the Director Industries, Haryana and also had played a major role in developing the IT Park in Chandigarh.
