4th December 2010, Comments 0 comments

French President Nicolas Sarkozy arrived in India Saturday, the latest in a line of global leaders beating a trade-focused path to the door of the world's second fastest growing economy.

Sarkozy, who will lobby on behalf of French companies chasing multi-billion-dollar Indian contracts for fighter jets and nuclear technology, is being accompanied on the four-day trip by his pop star wife Carla Bruni.

He flew in to the southern city of Banglaore, India's high-tech capital, where he will tour the headquarters of the Indian Space Research Organisation.
