Economic diplomacy - Creation of a strategic export committee by Matthias Fekl (Paris, March 23, 2015)


Matthias Fekl, Minister of State for Foreign Trade, the Promotion of Tourism and French Nationals Abroad, will launch the “strategic export committee” this afternoon.

This committee, which brings together key private and public actors responsible for the internationalization of companies, will enable them to coordinate their efforts more effectively, including with the regions.

The committee will notably make recommendations on guiding the new “Business France” agency’s export-related support. The strategic export committee will also monitor the effective implementation of the action plan for the internationalization of small and medium-sized enterprises released on March 11 at the first forum on this issue at the Quai d’Orsay.

A press briefing will take place at 4:00 pm following this first meeting.
