Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy, is organsing “Vision Golfe”, the main business event between France and the Gulf Cooperation Council, a new platform to promote business cooperation in markets with high-growth potential.
The conference is scheduled to take place in Paris on June 13-14, 2023, at the premises of French Ministry of the Economy, Finance and Industrial and Digital Sovereignty, under the high patronage of Mr Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic.
The conference will cover a wide range of topics, including best practices for building sustainable partnerships between France and the GCC region, including panel discussions focusing on economic diversification and creating business models for sustainable development, cooperation and investment opportunities in various sectors such as aerospace, blue energy, digital transformation, green industry, renewable energy, biotechnology, culture, consumer goods, cosmetics and fashion, food, transportation and logistics, and healthcare, use cases and success stories on the latest trends and innovations shaping ongoing projects between French companies and GCC partners.
This will also be an opportunity to identify potential investment projects and learn more about why France has become the most attractive destination in Europe for foreign direct investment.
“Vision Golfe” aims to strengthen relations between France and the GCC region. Despite persistent global challenges, the future looks bright for the Gulf countries, due to forward-looking policies and bold investments in energy transition and sustainable development. France, with its industrial excellence, historical know-how, expertise in key sectors and its strong decarbonisation policy, is fully committed to take part in the gulf visions through capacity-building, leading to fruitful business collaborations.
This major business event will bring together key decision makers from the private and public sectors, including policy makers, ministries from the GCC and France, business leaders, high-potential midcaps, SMEs and startups to explore new opportunities for collaboration and investment, while showcasing success stories of great partnerships that contribute to localisation strategies and the Gulf Visions.
More than 1000 business meetings are set to happen, along with themed panel discussions and workshops.
