“Nigeria is a land of investments and development for French companies. Africa is our new frontier.

“We are friends and have much to gain by building strong, confident and sustainable business relationships.

“Although France has much to contribute to Africa, but Africa has so much to bring to France.”

It added that Gattaz would lead the delegation of the 50 companies - small, medium or large - interested in the many opportunities of the Nigerian market.
