SOUTHERN AFRICA EUROPE CEO DIALOGUE 6TH EDITION Johannesburg - The Maslow Hotel 29-30 October 2019 An exclusive and influential community of leaders. Join the Southern Africa Europe CEO Dialogue and build long-term relations based on knowledge, personal feeling and trust. WELCOME EDITO FSACCI BOARD OF DIRECTORS WELCOME FSACCI PLATFORM p.9 MEMBERS p.38 WORK WITH US GOVERNANCE & ETHICS 1 EDITO Message from His Excellency, the Ambassador of France to South Africa, Mr Aurélien Lechevallier South Africa and France are strategic partners in all areas: politics, economics, science, culture, education… Our two countries are members of the G20 and share a common responsibility to promote an open but also regulated global economy. This is the message the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Jean-Yves Le Drian, shared with his counterpart during his official visit in South Africa last February. South Africa was among the few countries invited by France to the G7 Summit. Fighting inequality is the priority of the French G7 presidency, notably through a renewed partnership with Africa. Looking at bilateral trade and investment relations, Europe is the first partner of South Africa, with a well-recognised French expertise. In France, South African companies have invested hundreds of millions of euros in the past years. In South Africa, French companies, from highly internationalised groups to SMEs, employ 40,000 people. Their strategy is to invest with a long term perspective and to contribute to the socio-economic transformation of the country. In both countries, structural reforms aiming to improve the business environment are being undertaken and will help fostering those economic relations. At a political level, after the success of the French-South African political dialogue forum last February, the joint economic commission to be held later this year in South Africa, could be another opportunity to develop them further. In the digital and tech industry, the new labelling of a Cape Town-Johannesburg French Tech Community will allow us to further strengthen our bilateral cooperation. Against this backdrop, the French South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FSACCI) played a significant role in 2018 in building bridges between South African and French businesses. To name just a few, the success of both the Business Forum organised in October and the Sustainable City conference in November was also due to its key contribution. In 2019, the wine and spirits committee appears as a new initiative between the Embassy and the FSACCI to support innovation in that industry. Congratulations to the FSACCI team for their dynamism and the support they provide to French and South African companies. I wish all FSACCI members a successful year and pledge the full support of the Embassy of France, the French Development Agency and the Alliance Française network. Aurélien LECHEVALLIER 2 EDITO Message from the French Trade Commissioner, Managing Director of Business France Sub- Saharan Africa, Mr Axel Baroux Dear partners and friends, Launched in February 2018, in the city of Roubaix by the French Prime Minister Mr Edouard Philippe, the reform of the aid scheme for the internationalisation of French companies is underway. In most regions of France, the “Team France Export” (a partnership between Business France, the agency supporting the development of the French economy, Regional authorities, French chambers of commerce and industry, private sector actors and Bpifrance, the French public investment bank) is progressing. Associates from our various organisations are working in full synergy, for the benefit of exporting SMEs and middle-market companies. Our common and shared objective is to assist French companies to develop internationally, to develop their exports, to increase their turnover and to create jobs. Abroad, we wish to strengthen and develop the “Team France Export” as well, in order to collectively offer French companies solutions tailored to their specific needs. This will be the aim of future partnerships to come, henceforth up until the end of the year, in South Africa. In the meantime I can only welcome with joy, the partnership and friendship which binds Business France and the French-South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FSACCI). As a member of the Chamber, I am most pleased with and look forward to the range of services it offers to its members. As a partner, I am most grateful for the role it played in, for example, the success of the South African-French Business Forum organised in October of last year; the support it rendered to Business France regarding the organisation of the Sustainable City conference which took place in November 2018 ; for the hosting services that it offers to the “Young Professionals in Enterprise” (V.I.Es) as well as the promotion of the V.I.E French International Professional Internship programme ; for the insightful and valuable advice it gives to our client companies setting up in South Africa…and much more! Henceforth, together with the FSACCI, we possess a common ambition: the ambition to go further for our clients and members! I wish each one of you an enjoyable and insightful read, of this all new edition of the FSACCI handbook. Axel BAROUX 3 EDITO Message from the FSACCI Chairman, Dr. Yves Guénon Dear FSACCI Members, Partners and Friends, The year 2018/2019 has been a full and rich time in the life of the French-South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry and a stepping stone in positioning FSACCI as a reliable and strong actor within the business community in South Africa. It has constituted a transitional year to experiment, create and grow, and therefore we have seen a lot of new initiatives arise and a renewed strategy emerge. In that regard, we would like to thank our esteemed Members for their active participation in this journey as well as our new members for their trust and added-value they provide to the diversity and richness of our network. An acknowledgement needs to be given to the FSACCI board - whose dedication, commitment and advice is invaluable to the Chamber and a pleasure to preside over. Being a part of our network of South African and French businesses is to foster collaboration, share one’s expertise and experience, to grow stronger together and embrace common values. As for the French-South African Chamber, we respect a strict code of ethics and principles of good governance: • Inclusivity – We are a diverse network, made of start-ups, young entrepreneurs and large companies and we are committed to women and youth empowerment. We furthermore cherish our dual French-South African identity and warmly welcome member companies of all nationalities. It is through this diversity that we thrive. • Independence – We are member-based and member-driven, thus allowing us set an agenda based on the needs and priorities of our members. • Partnership – We facilitate business connections, foster collaboration and provide privileged platforms for our members to fully benefit from one another. • Ethics & Transparency – We remain neutral and impartial in the services we offer through our commitment to due diligence and excellence. Our renewed Memorandum of Incorporation allows as to work as a collective and ensures open access to our structure of governance and through our Annual General Meeting, a platform to ensure accountability and transparency. To the members of the French-South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry, I thank you for your commitment to these shared values. It is a privilege to work side by side with you, our members, and look forward to the continued success and growth of your business.
