France to succeed Switzerland at the helm of European Business Club in Mozambique


The France-Moçambique Business Club has been nominated to succeed Switzerland in the presidency and secretariat of the European Business Club (EBC) for 2017.

Created in 2015, the EBC brings together economic and diplomatic representatives from 15 European countries. Its members are the business clubs, chambers of commerce, and embassy economic services departments of Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Australia, Finland, Portugal, Spain, Great Britain and the European Union. The EBC has the support of the European Ambassador, Sven Kühn von Burgsdorff, in addition to that of the ambassadors represented.

The EBC represents about 600 European companies, and its main objective is to expand business networks and facilitate implementation and to follow up on the businesses of established companies, marshalling efforts to find viable platforms for collaboration with government with a view to finding solutions to the problems faced by companies.

In addition to co-ordinating the services of the French business community, the France-Mozambique Business Club is in charge of co-ordinating the actions of all EBC events. In that capacity, the Club organized, with the support of the French Embassy, the first EBC event for 2017 on 16 February, which also served as the official launch of its presidency.

On this occasion, the French Ambassador in Mozambique, Bruno Clerc, invited all the representatives of the countries associated with the EBC and its member companies to the Embassy Residence for cocktails. About 150 participants were expected to attend.

The event was sponsored by renowned European companies Mazars, DHL, Société Générale and Pernod-Ricard.

The money collected during the event was donated to two charity projects selected by the EBC: the ‘Wamina Girl’ project, which helps young Mozambican women manage their menstrual cycles in order to safeguard their rights to health, training and dignity; and ‘Lécole-orphelinat Alulamile’, headed by NGO ASAS, which fights poverty in Matutuine district.

This project also intends to construct toilets to improve children’s hygiene and health conditions.
