Ambition Africa



On October 17 and 18, the GROUPE RAGNI participated in and sponsored Ambition Africa, held at the Ministry of the Economy, Finance and Industrial and Digital Sovereignty in Paris.

Jean-Christophe RAGNI, our General Manager & Export Manager, took part in the “African Cities: Towards Sustainable Urban Mobility” round table, alongside Johnson SAKAJA, Governor of Nairobi, Cécile CAMILLI, Société Générale’s Global Head of Development & Structured Export Finance, and Dr Gérémie SOLLE, First Deputy Mayor of Douala.

We’ve been present on the African continent for almost 30 years, notably in Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal, where we opened two subsidiaries in 2022, and also in Benin and Gabon, where we enjoy an exclusive foothold. Our mindset has always been to pursue a development strategy in collaboration with our local partners.

It is through this strong cooperation that we train and support national employees who are actively working to improve their country’s public lighting services, as Africa today is clearly demonstrating its desire to develop its infrastructures. As designers and integrators of end-to-end solutions, we aim to support this ambition by helping decision-makers implement their national public policy on public lighting, offering them a range of products and services perfectly suited to the challenges facing their region. It is this expertise that has enabled us to carry out major projects in Senegal (36,000 light points for ANER), Benin (Boulevard de la Marina in Cotonou with 1,200 luminaires on the city’s main thoroughfare and more than 1,500 others in various zones), Gabon, where we have installed more than 11,000 light points over the last ten years, as well as in Côte d’Ivoire (Grand Bassam, Boulevard de Marseille and Plateau in Abidjan and Bingerville) and Cameroon.
