This same presentation will soon be made to the digital players in London, but given the relationship woven with neighbouring French regions through well-established cooperations, French neighbours are not forgotten and have even had exclusivity! Because this experiment could represent an excellent springboard for the Brittany and Norman companies wishing then to conquer the Anglosaxon market.

“French companies wishing to export their product or service to the English market now have an ideal way to access a test-bed before going international. We have already attracted the interest of several companies in France who see the advantage of using their Jersey neighbour in this way, “said Tony Moretta, CEO of Digital Jersey.
