The French national agency for the internationalization of the French economy, Business France, will lead a delegation of French companies in the new technology sector (13-17 November 2017) to Partnerships with Gabonese and Cameroonian companies.
The choice of Gabon and Cameroon, says the agency, is linked to the fact that they are the two major players in Central Africa in terms of digital. In fact, according to Business France, “the inhabitants of Douala and Libreville capture a 4G that has nothing to envy in Paris“.
In addition, the two countries are particularly close in the business environment. This is why the agency encourages French companies to explore the two markets in parallel.
However, according to Business France, the ecosystem of information and communication technologies (ICT) is under construction. The offer is lower than the demand, in B to B (software package, computer security, training …) and B to C (e-commerce, video app, geolocation …). This represents idle market niches that may be of interest to French operators.
Created on January 1, 2015, Business France is the result of the merger of Ubifrance and Afii (French Agency for International Investments). Business France has 1,500 employees located in France and in 70 countries around the world. It is supported by a network of public and private partners.
