Whilst there is a large amount of uncertainty regarding the future of economic relations between France and the United Kingdom at the moment, we are not only happy, but also proud to work alongside the Franco-British Chamber on building an impressive vision of what this “special relationship” between companies of our two nations should be. That be the case with or without, before or after, Brexit.

In this respect, the creation of the Cross-Channel Institute, in partnership with PwC and the British Embassy, is a great opportunity to reinvent our economic & trade relations with the United Kingdom for the coming decades.
