Despite economic conditions that continue to vary from one region to another, our growth is constant and validates the geographic diversification strategy pursued these past years. Building on the business momentum of the past three years, a product range largely updated in 2015 and 2016 and our expansion in India and China, our growth will accelerate in 2016 and we will improve our positions in all our regions".
