Visit to Bureau Veritas laboratory [fr]
On 20 November 2014, Ambassador Barbier visited in Johannesburg one of Bureau Veritas’ laboratories, a world leading, professional services company. She was accompanied by Serge Boscher, chief du Department of Economic Affairs for Southern Africa, and Jacques Torregrossa, director of Ubifrance - Southern Africa.
This visit gave her the opportunity to appreciate the large range of technical and qualified positions occupied by young South Africans in this laboratory working for local companies.
The French group has developed its presence in Southern Africa over recent years: South Africa (1 300 jobs), Angola (200 jobs), Mozambique (150 jobs), Namibia (50 jobs) and implementation is under way in Zambia.
