Message from the President

Our values

“Network” and “Business Community” are the first words that come to mind when our members are asked. Then “Listening, Caring, Understanding the issues”.

It is all this and more that our members experience during our exchanges to identify member-to-member services, thematic Masterclasses, breakfasts for SMEs and entrepreneurs or to find opportunities via the “Business Connect” platform.
Watch, they say it so well themselves.
