For 130 years, the CCE have been volunteering their experience to support the French economic presence in the world by advising France's government agencies, transmitting their expertise to businesses, particularly Small & Medium size companies (which they sponsor in their international development), and meeting young graduates to guide them toward international careers. The CCE organization boasts over 4 500 members in 150 countries (2/3 abroad and 1/3 in France). All appointed by a Decree of France’s Prime Minister, these businessmen and women are chosen for their expertise and international experience.
