Why Globacom sealed deal with Nokia Alcatel-Lucent, Vocalcom in France

More facts have emerged on why Nigeria’s leading and foremost telecommunications company, Globacom, consummated a deal with Nokia Alcatel-Lucent, a global telecom equipment manufacturing company, and Vocalcom Technology, another French company.
Details made available to Business Hilights show that while Nokia Alcatel-Lucent will supply, install, and integrate a new Sure Pay Intelligent Network platform that will substantially enhance Globacom subscribers’ experience, the Purchasing Order (PO) to Vocalcom Technology, will deepen Globacom’s Interactive Voice Response and Contact Center Solutions.
Giving further insights on both deals, Globacom’s Executive Vice Chairman (EVC), Mrs. Bella Disu, attended the 2019 Choose France International Business Summit at the Chateau de Versailles, France, on Monday, January 21, 2019, said “These agreements are geared towards ensuring that Globacom continues to provide first-rate telecommunications services in the countries where we operate,”
Business Hilights recalls that corporate chiefs from multinational companies across the world recently met with the President of France, Mr. Emmanuel Macron, at a dinner organised to promote France’s attractiveness as a business environment.
They also used the Summit to publicise major investments and partnerships involving French companies.
Mrs. Disu had earlier attended the inaugural meeting of the France-Nigeria Investment Club, which President Macron launched during his 2018 visit to Nigeria.
She described her engagements with global business leaders in France as impactful, adding that it was an important platform for exploring collaborations and business development.
She recalled that “We have long chosen France, and we welcome every opportunity to expand our interests and alliances here.”
“The Mike Adenuga Group is known for its strong ties with France. Globacom and Conoil Producing Limited have had over a decade of strong business relationships with French companies, including Total and Alcatel, which is now Nokia Alcatel-Lucent. The group of companies also supports the principal international French cultural organisation, Alliance Francaise, in Lagos.
Recall that during his state visit to Nigeria last year, the French President commissioned the state-of the-art Mike Adenuga Alliance Francaise Centre donated by the Globacom Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, to promote French and Nigerian cultures in Lagos.
