Lecharpy said, “India remains one of the important markets for Groupe Renault. The start of the New Design Academy is a testimony of our strong customer centric approach and long-term vision to strategically developing the skill-set of its workforce. With the Design Academy, we decided to make an extra step to train young talents, select the best and put them together in one of our foreign Design Studio. We will give a project to develop for which they will get the chance they were waiting for to unleash their creative abilities and skills.”
