Association Information
Association Activity : History

AmCham France was founded by eleven US businessmen in Paris on Thursday, June 28, 1894, making it the oldest US business association overseas. Its stated mission was 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."

The Chamber's first major banquet, on July 4th 1895, was attended by the Foreign Minister, the Minister of Commerce and Industry, the US Ambassador, and Frederic Bartholdi, the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty. At this dinner, AmCham President and co-founder Stephen Tyng further defined the Chamber's role: "Our vocation, in a word, is to be the unofficial hyphen, or trait d'union, between the public authorities and the private enterprises of these two nations, France and the United States." During his farewell address as AmCham President, Tyng added that "the interweaving of French and American interests in a bond of commercial union will be the best contribution we can make to the larger hopes of the coming century."

While AmCham France has undergone many changes since 1894, its fundamental mission remains very similar to what its founding fathers defined.

Mission

AmCham France's goals are to promote a productive and open business climate between France and the United States, characterized by unrestricted trade and investment.

AmCham France is the collective voice of Franco-American business interests in France and the United States. Through the Board of Directors and its Task Forces, it serves as both a forum and a representative body for US and French companies, and professionals and associations with international interests. It allows American companies to integrate more effectively into the French business community, helps its members to understand the legislative and institutional framework in France, the US, and the European Union, and offers French firms an opportunity to build closer ties with American firms and US authorities. Through strategic partnerships with similar organizations, AmCham France acts as a nexus for associations promoting trans-Atlantic understanding.

Trade and Investment Facilitation

AmCham France assists American companies wishing to invest in or trade with France, and French companies seeking similar opportunities in the United States. To this end, AmCham France works closely with the US Foreign Commercial Service in France, the US Chamber of Commerce in Washington, and the Council of American States in Europe (CASE), as well as with various French and US government or private sector investment organizations.
