The trip follows an agreement signed between their respective governments last year, and is aimed at boosting trade.

They both have different systems of standards for construction and trade-training.

But in a statement, the French embassy says they hope to harmonise them, in an effort to make it easier to trade, and for construction companies to take up projects in each place.
