Established in 1979, the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore is a non-profit organisation, self-financed, that supports businesses in their development. We assist companies at every stage of their project in Singapore and the region, from their first approach of the market to implementation of their projects, and growth of their business in Asia.
With over 740 member companies, of which the majority covers South East Asia and the larger Asia Pacific (APAC) region, our team can rely on a network of experts and valuable contacts to help French companies approach the Asian market.
Through 18 sectorial and functional committees, we organise over 220 events throughout the year, from roundtables and conferences with industry principals and domain experts to networking. This platform of events facilitates the exchange of targeted information and best practices among the business community, as well as the sharing of insights on regional business opportunities. We accelerate our members’ businesses through this extremely dynamic network and understanding of markets in the zone.
Our Franco-Singaporean business community is the indispensable professional network for business development to expand in Singapore and South East Asia. Our support is based on trust with our local and regional networks (including other French Chambers of Commerce (CCI), notably in the ASEAN and larger APAC region).
We offer a full range of services: commercial support, the establishment of subsidiaries, business set-up, the establishment of representative offices, applications for visas and work permits, and accommodation of employees in the French Chamber office space. This infrastructure helps largely the VIE (Volontariat International en Entreprise) integration; start-ups and entrepreneurs are strongly supported and in a context of distant relationships, SMEs and large groups appreciate having the interlocutors of the same culture with a strong expertise to implement their subsidiaries: we help them accelerate their projects with confidence.
The Business Centre offers workspace solutions built around accelerating business development in Singapore and in Asia. A dedicated line-up of workshops and web conferences with subject and country experts and counterparts in our regional CCI network has been organised, focused on questions that interest the companies based in the Business Centre. Numerous social events and communication tools facilitate gaining of greater visibility, while offering a friendly and professional working environment.
