Role and missions


The FNZCCI (formerly the French New Zealand Business Council) was created in 1985 from the desire to foster stronger and sound business relationships between France and/or French Pacific Islands and New Zealand. Today, the FNZCCI is managed by an Auckland-based Board of Executives, business people themselves, who are elected annually by Members.


Our objectives

The objectives of the FNZCCI are: 

  • To promote and extend mutually prosperous and amicable economic, social and commercial relationships between individuals, firms, companies, corporations, institutions and associations of France/French Pacific Islands and those of New Zealand. The mission of the FNZCCI is to help its Members with queries they may have regarding their bilateral business, and also to answer questions and help overseas businesses who want a local partner in New Zealand.
  • To assist French/French Pacific Islands companies in setting up subsidiaries in New Zealand, including initial research, general business assistance, and vice versa regarding New Zealand companies wishing to enter the French market. 

Small in its beginnings, the FNZCCI continues to expand recruiting new members every year. Members are typically French companies, subsidiaries of French companies, New Zealand companies with French/French Pacific Islands links, New Zealand companies who simply like France/French Pacific Islands, and even French and New Zealand individuals.


Develop your network with the FNZCCI

The FNZCCI promotes networking between its members and guests with one simple objective: bring together business people who like France /French Pacific Islands and its lifestyle, as well as French/French Pacific Islands products and industries. We organize many events each year, such as Bastille Day and Beaujolais Nouveau, business breakfasts and networking functions, which most of the time are centred around good food and wine!
