About us

At the interface between businesses and public authorities, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Nouvelle-Aquitaine coordinates and supports the activities of the network of 13 Territorial Chambers of Commerce and Industry (CCIT).

Its Role:
The CCIs of Nouvelle-Aquitaine carry out service missions for businesses in their jurisdiction, in line with the directions given by CCI Nouvelle-Aquitaine and in coherence with regional sectoral plans:

  • Support, assistance, networking, and advice in business creation and takeover, notably through the Business Formalities Centers (CFE)
  • Support and advice for the international development and export of businesses' production
  • Establishment and management of initial or ongoing professional training facilities
  • Creation and management of facilities, especially port and airport infrastructures.Expertise, consultation, or studies requested by public authorities on matters related to industry, commerce, services, economic development, professional training, or regional planning

A National Reform:
The law of July 23, 2010, supplemented by the decrees of August 3, 2010, and December 1, 2010, along with decree No. 2016-1894 of December 27, 2016, significantly changed the organization of the consular network in France as part of the General Review of Public Policies (RGPP).

Effective from January 1, 2011, this reform is based on three main principles:

  1. Strengthening the national level and regional levels (CCIR), while maintaining local proximity (CCIT)
  2. Improving the quality and consistency of services provided by chambers to businesses in their territory
  3. Reducing the fiscal pressure on businesses.
