French Govt. Pledges food sufficiency support for Nigeria – envoy

The French Government on Tuesday pledged her support to the Nigerian government in the latter’s bid to achieve food sufficiency.
Mr. Laurent Polonceaux, the Consul General of France in Nigeria, made this pledge on-behalf of his country at the opening ceremony of the Second Agrofood and Plastprintpack Exhibition organised by Fairtrade in Lagos.

In her own remark, Ms Martina Claus, Project Manager Africa, German Engineering Federation (VDMA), said increased awareness and prosperity of the people were responsible for the growth of Nigerian’s food and packaging industry.

“During the same period, imports of packaging machinery and equipment increased from 85 million euros to 201 million euros, showing a 136 per cent increase.

“Imports of plastic machinery grew by 61 per cent from 54 million Euros to 87 million Euros,” Ms Claus said.
