“My primary objective, capitalising on the Group's potential and expertise in order to step up its growth, has been strengthened by the measures implemented over the past two years. I remain convinced of APRIL’s ability to return to growth and, over the longer term, to an increased profitability” commented Emmanuel Morandini.
