MESsage

FACCI President

ʝʝ from

Dear Members and Friends of the French-Australian Chamber, Despite the post-GFC effects Australia remains "The lucky country". As the 12th largest economy, with 23 consecutive years of growth, a solid AAA rating and low unemployment, Australia is a resilient, dynamic and open economy chosen by an increasing number of multinational corporations and SME's as a great place to invest and to do business. For these reasons, and many others, the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry and its 5 Chapters has grown, now representing a business platform of more than 700 members (the 3rd largest membership base of French bilateral Chambers in Asia-Pacific), and a network of more than 4,500 contacts across Australia. Our attractive calendar of corporate events has also proven to be an important factor in the record attendance of 8,000 guests who attended 100 functions.

Our Chapters have improved their operational structure and services, and have seen their activity significantly growing, particularly in Sydney, in the best interest of our business community. Our Constitution will also soon reflect the recent changes in the governance of the Chamber. Consequently, the team at Federal and State Chapters levels should contribute to the provision of a more defined and tailored service. Launched last year, our employment platform has facilitated the recruitment of more than 50 fulltime employees, and the Chamber's Business Services has supported a growing number of French companies in exporting to Australia, and exploring new opportunities. These positive indicators have encouraged us to initiate new projects and to promote the close relationship between France and Australia, a relationship that will be highlighted by numerous official and business visits during the year, and as part of the G20/B20 hosted in Australia. I would also like to take this opportunity to warmly thank our members for their active involvement, our board members and operational team for their commitment, hard work and achievements. The year ahead will certainly demonstrate the continuation of the trend, and our Chamber will pursue its efforts to always serve you best.

Bruno GUTTON President of the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry

SOPEXA

In 2013, FACCI received more than 200 queries from companies wishing to explore opportunities on the Australian market. 30 French companies have contracted FACCI business support department to support them via different type of services, from market survey to business matching, and from helping in establishing the subsidiaries to hosting them. Almost 50 companies have been supported by liaising them with the FACCI Network.

The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Sopexa took great pleasure in inviting wine professionals to the Wine Trade Tasting: "A Taste of French Terroirs" in Sydney and Melbourne.

For 2014, FACCI ambitions to further develop its tailored hosting and domiciliation services for French SMEs wishing to post a VIE or employee and set-up their operations in Australia. FACCI also benefits from a network of members and service providers specialised in the procedures in establishing a business in Australia (chartered accountants and tax agents, immigration agents, lawyers).

They put their trust in Facci Collective missionS (Trade shows, Trade Days in France, Business cooperation)

This trade-only event gave to an important contingent of 250 Australian importers, distributors, retailers, sommeliers and medias, to sample a fine selection of wines from various French regions and terroirs, and meet with the representatives of the participating wineries. 15 wineries, negociants and distributors showcased more than 150 French wines at Quay in Sydney, and Comme in Melbourne.

Individual missionS (Business Development, Market Research, Marketing Campaign, Hosting)

my australian job FACCI launched a job search platform, My Australian job: www.my-australian-job.com This project results from an initiative supported by the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FACCI), The French Trade Advisors (CCFE) Ubifrance, under the patronage of the Embassy of France to Australia. More than 150 jobs and interships offers have already been posted and close to 2,500 applicants have registered. The monthly traffic reaches close to 5,000 visits per month.

Most of the wineries showcased their wines in Australia for the first time; hence the tasting was a fantastic opportunity to explore the Australian market and eventually conclude a distribution partnership.
