MAABN Partner Associations


The American Chamber of Commerce in France is the oldest AmCham in the world and a driving force in transatlantic economic relations, promoting bilateral investment and trade since its inception in 1894. Today, the 4200 U.S. companies present in France represent 450,000 French jobs. The AmCham’s more than 500 members include over 150 CAC 40 and Fortune 100 companies. The Chamber’s activities and operations are completely funded by dues and contributions from its members.

Part of a network of 115 AmChams worldwide, AmCham France is a gateway to a global and dynamic business community. The Chamber organizes round tables with top decision-makers from U.S., French and European government administrations and international business leaders to promote a constructive dialogue on a variety of strategic issues, including taxation, talent management, data protection, sustainable development, intellectual property rights and trade harmonization.

The Franco-British Chamber of Commerce & Industry looks to connect businesses within the Franco-British business community in France, helping companies both large and small from both sides of the Channel to survive and thrive within the open French market. Primarily, the Chamber brings together businesses and entrepreneurs alike through organising bespoke networking events, providing advice and by developing a strong network of both public and private clients.

The Chamber has a wide-ranging network of assistants and contributors that can help entrepreneurs set up a business in France, obtain training and qualification advice or connect them with other businesses within a sector inside France. The Chamber provides the perfect promotional launch pad with which to extend an activity within the thriving Franco-British business community.




In order to better promote the interests of its sponsors and members, the MAABN has played an active role in founding and establishing the ‘Union des Chambres de Commerce et Clubs d’Affaires Bilatéraux’ or, more simply, UCCCAB.

This innovative association was created in 2010 by a group of like-minded, bi-national business networks from Belgium, Greece, Armenia, Germany, Switzerland, Morocco and, of course, the UK and the USA.

At a time when the economic activities of the consular representatives of many nations are suffering cutbacks, the role of such local business networks has taken on increased importance. The UCCCAB will be well-placed in the future to help strengthen business ties between Marseille-Provence and its international partners and customers and, to this end, the new network continues to widen under the presidency of Olivier Van de Winkel.

The UCCCAB issues a regular newsletter with information about events and contacts. MAABN members are of course automatically invited to attend the events organised by other bi-national networks, subject to the specific entry conditions.
