History & Mission

Created in 1896, The French-American Chamber of Commerce in the United States, is a bi-national, non-profit organization that seeks to contribute through the efforts of our chapters and members to the development and improvement of economic, commercial and financial relations between France and the United States.

Our members are businesses and people involved in French-American commerce or those who have significant interested in both countries, products and cultures. Professional and personal contacts are reinforced by frequent luncheons and seminars for our members. Our members also receive and have access to our local and national membership directories.

Our mission:

  • To encourage the sale of goods and services between the two countries and to promote a better understanding of international relations.
  • To provide information on the economic situation and work environment in France as well as in the U.S. as conducive to promoting commercial and industrial entrepreneurial investment in one country or the other.
  • To work in France and in the U.S. with different governmental, economic, diplomatic and consular  associations that pursue similar goals.
  • To facilitate contact between our members and the French-American community at large so as to develop solid commercial, economic and financial relationships between the two countries.
