Sarkozy Seeking to Sell Military Aircraft, Nuclear Reactors on India Visit – Bloomberg

French President Nicolas Sarkozy arrives in India tomorrow seeking a slice of its multi-billion dollar military spending and pushing Areva SA’s bid to sell at least two nuclear reactors.  Sarkozy will escort 50 chief executives, including those of aircraft-makers Dassault Aviation and EADS, on a presidential sales trip sandwiched between those of U.S. leader Barack Obama and Russia’s Dmitri Medvedev. Each has companies racing for contracts, including India’s planned purchase of $11 billion in jet fighters. “France is not a top player in India but it has had a steady and supporting role,” Gilles Boquerat, an analyst at the French Institute for International Relations in Paris, said in an interview. “India, for historical and obvious business reasons, has made France one of the top two countries on its list for future civil nuclear-energy deals.”
