Reinforcement of our presence in Africa
(posted on 4/05/2017)
By 2050, a quarter of the world’s population will live in Africa, currently home to 1.2 billion inhabitants and 50% of the global French-speaking population. The continent is home to a third of the world’s mineral reserves and has an average growth rate of 4.4%. No other continent does it better!
In total, 5% of visitors and 3% of exhibitors at our trade shows are from Africa, with a very strong presence from the Maghreb countries of North West Africa. France has very close links with Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, and it is probably no coincidence that our member trade shows have invested in these countries and built a solid relationship with our local offices there for a number of years.
