The chairman, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc and Heirs Holdings, Tony Elumelu, has called on France to forge a closer business relationship with African countries that goes beyond the existing tie with francophone countries in the continent. 
He made the call at the recent MEDEF Summer University Forum in Paris, an annual meeting of French business and political leaders. 
The forum is one of France’s leading gatherings, bringing together over 7,500 business and opinion leaders, including Heads of State, government officials, political and business leaders, academics and over 450 French and international journalists.
Elumelu, who is also the founder of the Tony Elumelu Foundation, was one of the select representatives from Africa, and contributed to the opening panel debate, ‘The World is Watching Us’, moderated by Frédéric Ferrer, a journalist, consultant and professor at ESCP Europe.
Other participants were the President of MEDEF, Pierre Gattaz; Gary Coombe; President of Proctor & Gamble Europe; and Oudet Souvannavong, Executive Vice-President of the Lao National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and President of Lao Hotel & Restaurant Association.
