A Pays de la Loire Regional Delegation in Côte d'Ivoire

As part of a mission to West Africa, from 25th to 29th November Nantes − Saint Nazaire Port accompanied representatives from Pays de la Loire Regional Authority on a stand at SARA 2019, the Agriculture and Animal Resources Trade Show, in Abidjan.

Led by Lydie Bernard, Vice-Chair of the Regional Council and Chair of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Committee, and by Christine Guerriau, the Regional Councillor responsible for overseeing international cooperation initiatives, the purpose of the mission was to showcase the sectors of excellence in the Loire Estuary economy, while at the same time offering Regional Community players the chance to create business opportunities with local partners.

The delegation comprised some fifty Loire Estuary industrialists, including members of the Nantes − Saint Nazaire Port sales team, who were setting out to highlight the port-based logistics projects, solutions and know-how that are available.
