Dear Members of the French Business Group,

I am very honored to have been elected as President by the Board on the 16th of July 2018.

Since its creation in 1974 the FBG has been through stories and experiences that have shaped the present. France and UAE have equally enhanced their partnerships in the political and human arenas.

At the FBG, we are happy to welcome more than 300 members representing the most relevant sectors of activity for both communities and to reflect the strength of the bilateral relationship by counting eminent representatives of the French and Emirati community among our board members.

The missions of the FBG remain unchanged:

– to promote and foster the development of French companies in the UAE,

– to create a strong and dynamic network of business information exchange,

– to develop relationships between our members and the Emirati business community.

The team remains committed to achieving the objectives defined when the board was elected in March 2017. Among them, the rapprochement with the FBC is progressing well. We nevertheless wish to intensify our efforts and diversify our events.

For this, you, dear members, partners and sponsors, are key.

As part of our signature events, the Entretiens de Royaumont will take place on the 30th of September at La Sorbonne Abu Dhabi.

We hope to see you all there!

Anne Le Guennec
