WA | French Senators Breakfast

FACCI had the privilege of welcoming a delegation of French Senators to Western Australia.

We had the privilege of welcoming a delegation of French Senators to Western Australia. For this visit, FACCI WA organised a Breakfast on Monday 23 September. This event was an opportunity to highlight the bilateral relations that exist between France and Australia, and more particularly the state of WA.

Mr Houllegatte - Senator of the Manche, Mrs Létard - Senator of the North, Mr Raynal - Senator of the Haute-Garonne, and Mr Nottelet, formed the delegation to Australia.  The breakfast started with an opening speech by our President Mrs Christine Caseris and a Welcome to the Country by Mr Barry McGuire. Mr Chris Tallentire MLA, and Mayor of Rockingham, Barry Sammels spoke about the strong relations that exist between France and WA. Some of the French companies operating in WA shared their experience working on major WA public projects, with the senators. The panel demonstrated their capabilities and presented their projects. The senators had the opportunity to establish a dialogue and find more on the companies experience in Australia.

The event concluded with a presentation of the Make it Right Foundation.  The foundation aims to repatriate the corpse of an aboriginal soldier from France to WA who died in battle during the First World War.
