NCAE:Celebrities Set To 'Sell' Nigeria To France
Nigeria will be 'selling its market' in the French capital of Paris.
This has been made possible by the Embassy of Nigeria who will host France business community and friends of Nigeria to an exhibition of some of Nigeria’s finest art, cuisine, fashion, music, film and traditional games, on the platform of the Nigerian Creative Arts Exchange.
The Exchange is a platform for promoting cultural exchange and diplomacy between Nigeria and France. The exhibition will take place at Le Pavilion Dauphine, Paris, Saint Clair on Saturday May 19, 2018.
The Nigeria Creative Arts Exchange will present a diverse display of products in the arts and the wider Nigerian culture, to create a better understanding of the tremendous opportunities that await French investors in West Africa's Jewel.
The Nigerian Creative Arts Exchange will feature among its creative industry giants, including Bisi Silva (world acclaimed visual arts curator); Ituen Bassey (Fashion); Orange Culture (Fashion); Andrea Iyamah (Fashion); Lanre Da Silva (Fashion); Chef Tiyan and Chef Fregz (Cuisine); Kemi Lala Akindoju (Nollywood) and Adekunle Gold (Singer-Songwriter)
During her Speech, The Nigerian Ambassador to France, Dr. Modupe Irele said “Through the Nigerian Creative Arts Exchange we are thus creating a forum where participants can make inquiries, network and build useful links, in a relaxed setting.
We invite participants to both experience the elements of Nigerian culture that will be on display, and to use the occasion to initiate conversations with representatives from the different industries which will range from fashion to pharmaceuticals, agriculture to real estate, finance to tourism, amongst others. These together represent a wide array of trade opportunities….”
The exchange will set the stage of President Macron of France visit to Nigeria in July with a business delegate, as Nigeria is already France’s largest trading partner in Africa, with diversified exports spanning petroleum, pharmaceuticals, electronic and Agro-allied products.
