After the first forum in Beijing in January 2009, followed by Shanghai on June 19th 2009, Shanghai is now hosting the 6th edition on December 3rd, 2010. The idea behind such a Forum arose from the fact that French very small, small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) and multinational companies MNCs in China are not working together the way they should. Solidarity between French companies is not as natural as in other communities (Germany, Japan...). It is in our common interest to help each other as French companies to allow good development of the French economic environment in China, especially with the current difficult situation.
The goal of this event is to engage China-based SMEs and MNCs to collaborate: develop long-lasting business connections, facilitate exchanges between French companies and share their experiences. SMEs and MNCs will also have the opportunity to create connections with each other on a special "free meeting" area designed in this objective. “Travailler Ensemble”, which can be translated as "Working together", is the beginning of a real cooperation among the French business community in China.
The forum is organized by the French Junior Chamber International in Shanghai (JCEF) in partnerships with the French Chamber of Commerce (CCIFC) , the Economic Section of the French Embassy, Ubifrance and the French Foreign Trade Advisors (CCE).
