French business mission visits Nigeria
Nigeria is a land of investment and opportunities for French companies through local partnerships.”
The above is the main message that Mr. Philippe Labonne, Deputy CEO of Bolloré Transport & Logistics and Vice Chairman of the Africa Committee of MEDEF International, the powerful French Business Confederation representing 75% of the private sector in France, will disseminate throughout the business mission’s stay in Nigeria, from today to Wednesday December 13, 2017.
Labonne, alongside Mr. Jean-Jacques Lestrade, Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Ponticelli Freres, will chair the 30-participant business mission, representing large, medium and small-sized companies interested in the many opportunities offered by the Nigerian market.
The fifth business mission to Nigeria organized by MEDEF International will visit Abuja and then Lagos, where delegates will have the opportunity to meet with public authorities, Nigerian private sector representatives as well as the French business community based in the country. A number of site visits are also planned, with a special focus on the iconic Eko Atlantic City.
“We strongly think that working hand in hand with French companies can be a source of constant and long-lasting improvement of the quality of Nigerian economic growth, by bringing to our local partners what makes us different: local content, training, innovation and knowledge transfer, Labonne said”.
A wide range of sectors are represented in that business mission, some of which are: oil and gas, health, transportation, aerospace industry, banking & financial services, energy, security, agro-industry as well as engineering.
