In partnership with the French Embassy in Canberra, Degrémont, and the
Ernst & Young French Business Centre, FACCI invites you to attend a
briefing on bilateral trade and investment between France and Australia.
This briefing will provide an outlook on the growing
economic and commercial relationship between France and Australia. The event
will also give the opportunity to hear about several recent investment and
PPP projects involving French companies in Australia.
