About Us

Who are CCE's?

French businessmen, chosen among the best known executives in the import/export field, in France and abroad, and appointed by a decree signed by the French Prime Minister for a three-year renewable term.

Foreign Trade Advisors commit themselves to work pro bono and to assist the French Administration in setting its trade policy. In foreign countries they are closely cooperating with the French Embassy Economic Department.

For the very beginning in 1898 (also important year for the Philippines!) they joined together in an Association called National Committee of French International Business Advisor designed to help them to carry out their mission; to work and think together, to hold discussions with public officials, to organize meetings and conferences and to exchange information and hint on foreign markets.

The association receives no government subsidies. It is entirely financed by its member's subscriptions.
