NSW - Cruise with the Europeans

    High-profile guests make for another successful FACCI business seminar



    On August the 7th, French Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (WA) was pleased to host a business seminar around the theme of the Australian election's impact on companies and their projects' development.


    More than 80 attended to hear guest speakers the Hon. Barry House (President of the WA Legislative Council) and Dr Harry Philips (political analyst and Parliamentary Fellow) present their insights and expert views on the workings of government in Australia.


    Our guests of honour, His Excellency Stephane Romatet (French Ambassador to Australia) and Eric Soulier (Cooperation and Cultural Counsellor), highlighted the importance of commercial and cultural relationships between France and Australia, especially in light of next year's World War I Centenary commemorations.


    A question and answer session concluded the seminar, during which both guest speakers responded to questions about issues such as compulsory voting and the future of the three tiers of government in Australia's political landscape.


    A relaxed and sociable cocktail reception followed, giving everyone the opportunity to mingle and extend their professional networks.  The event highlighted the importance that FACCI places on facilitating connections between French and Australian companies.



    The chamber would like to thank the Hon. Barry House and Dr Harry Phillips for their valuable contribution, His Ex. Stephane Romatet and Eric Soulier for their continuing support for French cultural and commercial projects in WA, and Patron Member Ernst & Young  for hosting the evening.

    Cruise with the Europeans 2013

    On Wednesday the 20th of November, the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry invited its members to one of the most popular and unique events of our social calendar, the annual Cruise with the Europeans.

    The event was co-hosted by all the Sydney-based European Chambers of Commerce including the British, Austrian, Danish, Finish, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Swiss and Swedish Chambers for their high profile members.

    Held aboard one of the largest sightseeing cruising vessels on Sydney Harbour, this exceptional networking event presented guests with the perfect opportunity to interact amongst 600 representatives of the European business community and enjoy the world famous view of the city with other Europeans members.

    We would like to thank the German Chamber for the organisation, and all the other Chambers and guests for their participation in making the evening so enjoyable and lively.

    We hope you enjoyed the night and we hope to see you again at another one of our upcoming events in 2014.
