Economic diplomacy – Meeting of the Strategic Export Council under the chairmanship of Matthias Fekl (March 14, 2017)


Matthias Fekl, minister of state for foreign trade, the promotion of tourism, and French nationals abroad, chaired the eighth session of the Strategic Export Council on March 14.

Over the past two years, this body that guides France’s export strategy has brought together public and private actors to support our businesses’ expansion abroad.

This new support mechanism, one that is more understandable, consistent and effective, has facilitated major progress.

This morning’s meeting helped take stock of the measures taken since the first forum on supporting SMEs involved in exports on March 11, 2015.
