The Minister added:« I visited the old Imprimerie Nationale when I was at university. Back then, it was slightly outdated and mainly produced phonebooks. Today, The Imprimerie Nationale has changed radically: it is a modern company that uses cutting edge technologies. Its skilful workforce is proud of its work. I believe their know-how can be applied to a growing range of activities, both in France and across the world. Thus strengthening France’s image and influence. »
