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.
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.
