Letter from the British Ambassador
Franco-British history is long and complex. We have bartered, traded and done business for centuries. We have been friends, allies, sometimes rivals. But through all our history, France and Britain have always been neighbours. Although the UK is no longer a member of the European Union, our relationship with France remains crucial and we wish to remain as close in commerce and global strategy as we are geographically.
Each FIBA member has their own Franco-British story. Our Department for International Trade office based in Lyon works to foster and nurture new links between British and French businesses. We fully support FIBA’s vital mission of helping local businesses develop their own Franco-British connections.
FIBA thrives thanks to its excellent connections and its conviviality. For anyone wishing to meet English-speaking business people in Lyon and the wider Auvergne Rhône Alps region, or to develop their own business across the channel, FIBA is a great place to start!
