CCIFM Advocacy Efforts

CCI France Malaysia is a bilateral chamber of commerce and has the objective of the development of trade between Malaysia and France.

Looking at its dual belonging and keeping in mind that the best way to assist its members is to provide them practical support for the setup, development and day-to-day operative activities, CCIFM always emphasizes to establish and nurture close relationship with the Malaysian and French authorities.

Over the years, CCIFM has established day to day operative collaborations with various Malaysian and French Agencies and have current MOU agreements with MIDA (promotion of Malaysia to French Investors, regional office set up, manufacturing facilities and other incentives), InvestKL (promotion of the Klang Valley and assistance to investors), Talent Corp (immigration matters, Malaysian students in France) and Business France (VIE Program).

Direct actions with the various regional agencies such as Invest Johor, Invest Negri Sembilan, Invest Penang and Northern Corridor are also done regularly. These collaborations are not taking place only in Malaysia but also in France (with CCI France International, Malaysian Embassy, Tourism Malaysia, MATRADE and MIDA offices in Paris.)

While the normal action plan would include promotion and practical support for investors, however, at the start of the COVID 19 pandemic in March 2020, CCIFM has further developed a field of action to support  existing and potential CCIFM Members.
