Ouagadougou (PRWEB) October 25, 2013
Prominent Asian direct selling company QNET returns as a major sponsor of the Tour du Faso, the 10-day race that is a fixture of the African cycling circuit and a major annual event for Burkina Faso.
QNET Director of Sports Sponsorship, Mr Joachim Steffen, said he is extremely pleased to return to Africa and work with the Burkina Cycling Federation to support this year’s event for a second year.
“As a global company, we support sporting events all over the world because we believe they bring diverse people and communities closer together. We are thrilled to be associated with this year’s Tour and look forward to a successful race. We wish all the teams a safe and enjoyable competition,” he said.
QNET Managing Director, Mr. JR Mayer, said that the Tour Du Faso is a natural fit for QNET as the company is growing rapidly in Burkina Faso and throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
“Burkina Faso and the whole region is an emerging and dynamic place which we are pleased to be supporting as an economic partner.”
In August, QNET established a local affiliate, QNET East Africa Ltd., and launched its e-commerce platform in Rwanda, as the company prepares for business expansion on the African continent.
In a further sign of QNET’s commitment to Burkina Faso, planning is underway for a large conference for the company’s local and regional representatives scheduled for November. Attendees will hear from company leaders and receive training on QNET products which include online courses, holiday packages, European watches, jewellery, fitness and nutritional supplements.
The company’s slogan, ‘the right products in the right business’, reflects the company’s commitment to not only life-enhancing products but also to providing a rewarding and sustainable career option for its Independent Representatives.
