Our experts are located in Dubai, Doha, Jeddah, Riyadh, Kuwait City, and Cairo.

We are at your service to connect with France’s most innovative businesses and we have the tools and advice you need to set up your business and access investment opportunities in France.

We are a key player in fostering competitiveness, growth, and employment in France, offering clear and efficient access to all corporate development stakeholders and services for all businesses, irrespective of their size, sector, and projects, from exports to investments through to multinational partnerships.

We also manage the V.I.E International Internship Program (Volontariat International en Entreprise), which enables companies with offices in France to send young European talents abroad for up to 2 years’ assignments, at a very competitive cost. We bring together all our expertise to support your business’ development and to ensure the success of your projects by offering a pragmatic, customized approach in line with your budget and ambitions. In 2019, there were 280 volunteers spread out in the Middle East.

In total, we are 42 people working in the Middle East, each of us being organized by areas of expertise.
