Our Chamber

The French Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain has been supporting the UK-France business community and promoting commercial relationships between the two countries since 1883.

Who we are

The French Chamber was established in 1883 to improve the commercial and industrial relationships between France and the UK. Today we are a network of over 400 French and international multinationals and SMEs with significant investment and operations in the UK. We are part of the network of International French Chambers of Commerce and Industry, spanning 125 Chambers in 95 countries, and more than 33,000 businesses.

Our mission is to

  • Strengthen business relationships and encourage partnerships between French and British business to support growth and investment across the UK, by providing members with opportunities to network, exchange ideas and learn from peers;
     
  • Promote the positive contribution of French business to the British economy, by bringing together members with key decision-makers and influencers on both sides of the Channel; and
     
  • Assist French businesses entering the UK market through a range of business services from company registration to accounting and market research.

Our strength

Our members are responsible for significant trade and investment in the UK. France is the UK’s second-largest trading partner in Europe, fifth-largest export market for goods in the world, and a major global source of imported goods and services. Investment by French companies in the UK is significant and mirrored by similar levels of UK investment in France.

We measure the strength of this economic contribution through a regular survey of trade conditions and a UK-France Business Dashboard, and we work closely with the French Embassy in London, and the British Embassy and the Franco-British Chamber in Paris.
