Orange Group planning to extend its footprint in Africa

International telco, Orange Group, is planning to extend its already substantial African footprint in highly profitable markets of Nigeria and South Africa.

From its early period as France’s national telecom operator, Orange Group has been spreading its wings and is already present across Europe, The Middle East and Africa.

According to the Chief Executive Officer of Orange Group, Stephane Richard, “It could make sense to be in economies such as Nigeria and South Africa. If one considers there are things to do, the timeframe I am considering is rather a few months than a few years.”

Orange Group has already marked its presence in 18 distinct markets across the Middle East and Africa, where it has boosted its portfolio of services beyond the traditional telco offering.
