The CMF around the world
In June 2014, the Cluster created the “French Maritime Cluster Committee in Singapore” (FMCCS) in association with the French Chamber of Commerce of Singapore (FCCS) in order to reinforce links between businesses in the French maritime sectors or simply to support the French maritime economy in South-East Asia.
The FMCCS is a forum for discussion, exchange, networking and lobbying and a tool for promoting these businesses. It has a cross-sector approach and operates like a business club in relation with the sector committees of the FCCS. For a year the FMCCS has been extremely active and has organised numerous site visits, business meetings and networking events, as well as meetings with project leaders and with maritime and port institutions in Singapore.
The FCCS publishes FOCUS, a magazine distributed to French, European and local business communities in Singapore. The September 2014 issue produced jointly with the CMF is a special maritime edition, "A Future Tide to the Sea", which carries features by the Chairman of the CMF, the Chairman of the FMCCS, and French businesses located in Singapore such as ASV, AXA, CGG, EUTELSAT, PIRIOU, TECHNIP, THALES, etc.
