MEDIA INDIA GROUP AT Pravasi Bharatiya Divas
Media India has been coordinating with the Ministry of Overseas india Affairs for past few years and we have been bringing quite a large number of delegates from the Francophone world and Europe, notably for, Belgium, Mauritius, Reunion, Guadeloupe, Martinique etc. In January 2010, the total number of Francophone delegates was about 130 and we had hosted the Francophone Dinner with the Minister Vayalar Ravi on January 10. We repeated this dinner for 2011 as well, in order to provide quality and focused interaction between the minister and the francophone delegates who are not very comfortable in English. And we will be hosting the fifth edition of the same at The Ashoka, New Delhi next year, the site of the PBD 2014.
