The French and South-African business community can rely on dynamic relays
The French community in South Africa numbers around 9,000 citizens, of which more than a half live in Gauteng province, composed of young professionals, corporate officers and individual entrepreneurs.
The French South African Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FSACCI) was created in 1980 and is a member of the UCCIFE, with around 150 members. The FSACCI gives priority to business clubs’ conventional activities but aims to provide more support to companies, in close collaboration with Ubifrance in Johannesburg. A satellite centre of the Chamber opened in Durban in June 2013.
