There Are 120 French Businesses In Nigeria – Ambassador

The Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to France, Dr. Modupe Irele, on Monday disclosed that there were currently about 120 French businesses located in different parts of Nigeria. Irele told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that Nigerians were also prepared to go into partnership with more French companies in adding value to Nigerian products. She said: “Nigeria is France’s largest trading partner in Africa. There are currently approximately about 120 French businesses that are active in Nigeria. “And Nigerian businesses are increasingly seeking out those partnerships that would add value to the diversification drive, and improve the quality of non-oil exports. “Nigerians want partnership in improving the quality of cocoa butter, fat and oil, frozen shrimps and prawns, ginger, sesame seeds, among others. “The French, like many other business people, are showing interest in Nigeria’s drive to improve the ease of doing business in Nigeria.”
