The business desk, ITREALMS gathered, would build a strong business relationship between France (Francophonie) and Nigeria and is worth ₦1,844,199,568,000.00 ( One trillion eight hundred forty-four billion one hundred ninety-nine million five hundred sixty-eight thousand naira).

Disclosing this, the Group Managing Director, Access Holdings, Dr. Herbert Wigwe said during a working visit of the French Minister of State for Development, Francophonie, and International Partnerships to Nigeria, Chrysoula Zacharopoulou.

He said that Access Bank’s French desk strategic platform would serve as a vital link between Business France, PROPACO, Agence Française de Développement (AFD), and other multilateral organizations.

“The Business Desk will provide tailored support and guidance to French businesses operating in Nigeria, as well as Nigerian businesses seeking to expand their presence in France,” he said.

Wigwe also noted that the journey of the financial institution began with President Emmanuel Macron’s invitation to Access Bank to establish a presence in Paris.

He said the invitation was a testament to Nigeria’s growing economic ties and the recognition of Access Bank’s role in facilitating trade and investment at global levels.

He said the management of the bank embraced the opportunity with great enthusiasm and recently established an office in Paris.

“With the creation of our French Desk, we are taking another significant step towards strengthening business ties between Nigeria and France.

“Your attendance speaks volumes about your unwavering commitment, optimism, and belief in the potential of Nigeria as a thriving market and your determination to contribute to its growth.

“We recognize the immense potential that lies within the Franco-Nigerian business relationship. By harnessing the strengths of both nations, we can unlock new opportunities, drive sustainable growth, and create shared prosperity. The Access Bank French Desk will play a pivotal role in facilitating trade and investment between our nations.

“It will serve as a knowledge hub, providing valuable insights, market intelligence, and networking opportunities for businesses from both countries. By leveraging our extensive network and expertise, we aim to create an enabling environment for French companies to thrive in Nigeria while also assisting Nigerian businesses in navigating the intricacies of the French market,” Wigwe said.

Responding, Ms Zacharopoulou, expressed optimism that the business desk in Lagos, would strengthen the relationship between Nigeria and French companies, particularly the medium-sized ones.
