In his speech, the Consul General emphasized that the French government will do all it can through the CCIFN to consolidate on the business relationship between both countries- Nigeria and France.

Mr. Hassan, the board chairman on the other hand confirmed the claims by stating that Nigerians are having the highest level of cooperation from the French.

She stated that the chamber has been in the forefront in encouraging business establishment in Nigeria while hinting that they are working to have robust programs in 2016.

“The chamber creates a platform for businesses. It helps and guide them in registering and adhering to international standards by doing the necessary groundwork’s for such businesses”, she said.

Mrs. Esther also added that “another aspect where The FNCCI makes contributions is in rendering legal advisory services to our members”.

However, language barriers and lack of credibility among Nigerians were largely highlighted by board members to be some of the challenges that are facing the evolving business relationship between both countries which the chamber promised to reduce in their capacity.

Meanwhile, the chamber also promised to carry out its corporate social responsibility for the year in the aspect of educating young Nigerians especially secondary school students in French language.

The language teaching scheme according to the general manager will cut across private and public schools in Lagos as personnel and logistics will be sent to selected schools.
