The American Chamber of Commerce in France is the oldest “AmCham” in the world – a driving force in transatlantic economic relations, promoting bilateral investment and trade since its inception in 1894. Today, the 4,200 U.S. companies present in France represent 450,000 French jobs. The AmCham's more than 500 members include more than 150 CAC 40 and Fortune 100 companies. The Chamber’s activities and operations are completely funded by dues and contributions from its members.
Part of a network of 115 AmChams worldwide, AmCham France is a gateway to a global and dynamic business community. The Chamber organizes roundtables with top decision-makers from U.S., French and European government administrations and international business leaders to promote a constructive dialogue on a variety of strategic issues, including: taxation, talent management, data protection, sustainable development, intellectual property rights and trade harmonization.
Today, we continue to build on the Chamber's strong foundation and expertise, staying true to our original mission to "take measures which may facilitate and protect the transactions of business between French and American interests and to collect information to facilitate business operations."
