Airtel Africa's chairman, Christian de Faria, met with Congo's minister of post and telecommunication to inform him that the group planned to remain in the country, reports Agence d'Information d'Afrique Centrale. The executive said, "I came to take stock of the situation in telecommunications in the country and to express our will to stay in Congo, then to continue to invest in new technologies by training 5,000 young people." Airtel entered talk to sell its Congolese subsidiary to Orange last summer, but Orange announced in January that the exclusive talks agreement had lapsed.
