Visit of the Ambassador of France to Australia in Melbourne

On Monday 3 October 2022, the  Ambassador of France to Australia, H.E. Mr Jean-Pierre Thébault was  the guest of honour at a lunch organized by the  Melbourne Chamber of Commerce. This organisation, which is part of the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry,  brings together Victoria’s most influential and iconic companies, business leaders, influencers and government representatives at local, state and federal level to affect policy, exchange ideas and lead Victorian business into the future. Together, they form Victoria’s largest business advocacy organisation.

After being welcomed by the CEO of the Melbourne Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Scott Veenker, the French Ambassador expressed his ideas on business opportunities between Australia, France and Europe. There was then a Q&A session led by Mr Paul Guerra, the CEO of the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
