FACCI at a glance
Established in 1899, when Australia’s trade relations with France were almost solely dependent on the export of wool, FACCI is an independent, not-for-profit organisation offering its 600 members Australia-wide the perfect medium to network, learn and develop their businesses. Via its five offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, the Chamber organises a range of business seminars and social events to keep members informed and to provide corporate networking and entertainment opportunities. FACCI is affiliated to the Union des Chambres de Commerce et d’Industrie Françaises à l’Etranger (UCCIFE), a worldwide network of 107 French Chambers operating in 77 countries.
FACCI offers a comprehensive range of services and communication tools to provide SMBs with the necessary infrastructural support should they be looking to expand, find new commercial partners, or establish your business in Australia.
FACCI has a network of professional members and service providers specialised in the setting up and development of a business in Australia (chartered accountants, immigration agents, business lawyers).
FACCI prides itself on being an open and friendly organisation with a strong focus on networking and partnerships. Membership with FACCI gives access to a wide network of senior business contacts, key players in the French-Australian business community and other organisations including the Department of Innovation, Industry and Regional Development, state investment bodies and other government agencies.
With the help of economists, lawyers and company executives, FACCI organises regular seminars and workshops on a range of topics that provide expert insight into key trade and technology trends, finance and tax, industrial relations and other issues that have an impact on businesses operating in Australia. These functions also provide an ideal opportunity for business leaders to gain new information, exchange views and build networks.
In addition to business functions, FACCI also hosts a range of sell-out social events renowned for their quality, French flair and elusive “Je ne sais quoi!” Our consistency in providing the best food and wine, a relaxed yet stylish ambience and a sophisticated range of entertainment provides members with the perfect opportunity for formal and informal networking.
