All French Chambers of Commerce in Asia gathered for their annual meeting in Hong Kong in March. The network has become one of the most influential in the region, and it was agreed that growth, innovation and dynamism are the key words explaining this success.


Thanks to an increase in the French presence in most countries in the region, coupled with the top-notch services the French Chambers provide, this Asian network now represents more than 8,000 French and local company members. The Chambers' top missions include: fostering trade between France and each of these countries; lobbying with both the local and the French authorities; and offering the best possible networking platform to their members.

At the same time, they seek 10 help all French companies based in France to approach Asian markets, and in 2011 alone, more than 4,000 French companies benefited from Chamber support to approach, export or settle in Asia. This network is completely independent and private, auto-financed by its members and its services.

Almost all of Asia was represented at the meeting, with participants from Australia, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, as well as two from the Middle East (EAU Abu Dhabi, EAU Dubaï). A large delegation from France was also there, with the UCCIFE (Charles Maridor and Dominique Brunin) and two large regional Chambers: CCI Paris (Martine Stepanek) and CCI Alsace (Didier Hoffmann).

The three-day meeting was held to share insights and know-how, with the aim of enhancing services to all our members. Several action plans were discussed to improve coordination between the Chambers in Asia, coordinate market information towards France and create sectorial approaches. The French Chamber in Hong Kong has been appointed, for the second year running, coordinator of the French Chambers in Asia.
