The Franco-British Chamber of Commerce & Industry, created in 1873, is the oldest international chamber of commerce in Europe. Established for more than 150 years in Paris, with later expansion in the French regions, we offer our members – who are companies of all sizes, multi-sector activities, and international – a wide range of tailor-made services to help them develop their cross-Channel activities.

The Franco-British Chamber is also the premier Franco-British business network in France. At the Chamber you will find an independent, non-political, interactive, and solid network composed of private and public partners in France and the United Kingdom. The Chamber is a private non-profit organisation (governed by the 1901 law).

We would be delighted to welcome you as a member of the Franco-British Chamber and help you develop your business across the Channel and internationally.

You can become a member of the Chamber in one of the following three categories:

The “President’s Forum” is aimed exclusively at the Executives and CEOs of large French companies or international groups investing in the United Kingdom and large British companies or international groups operating in France. The aim is for these large companies to meet and exchange views and experiences. They are ex officio members of the Cross-Channel Institute think tank;

The “Corporate” category is aimed at larger companies or institutional organisations wishing to develop or make their business known to the Franco-British business community, whether they are based in France or Great Britain;

The “Entrepreneurs” category is aimed at self-employed, micro-enterprises or SMEs seeking to develop their business within the Franco-British business community.
