When did you join FACCI?

"In 2012 -I founded the WA Chapter – at the demand of  the Ambassador for France, Mr Filhol-  following a mission I performed in 2007 for the “Mission Economique” (now Business France), showcasing the economic bilateral relationship between France and the State of WA. The mission was programmed on 3 weeks with 15 events."

What was(were) the reason(s) for you to want to get involved?

"As 2012 was very dynamic in the Resources sector, a support in services for our SMEs, Start-up and Intermediate French companies was needed."
