November 24th 2023

Business France, the national agency supporting to the international development of the French economy, announces the second edition of "Vision Golfe," a key annual event fostering trade cooperation between France and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Following the successful inaugural edition, this year's event is scheduled for June 4 and 5, 2024, at the French Ministry of the Economy, Finance, and Industrial and Digital Sovereignty in Paris.


Endorsed by the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industrial and Digital Sovereignty and the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the first edition attracted over 800 delegates, including 400 key economic players from the six Gulf countries. The event facilitated more than 1000 B2B interactions, laying the groundwork for fruitful collaborations and innovative partnerships.


As world’s first business event for French-Gulf relations, "Vision Golfe 2024" aims to host numerous sessions this year featuring ministers, leaders of international organizations, and distinguished speakers.


Discussions will cover strategic topics such as the evolution of trade routes and the Gulf's pivotal role in global commerce today in a region looking towards a future where upgraded infrastructures and transport systems are the cornerstones of tomorrow.


Special focus will be on national ambitions for 2030, addressing key sectors like sustainable energy post-COP28, aiming for an energy revolution. Health in the Gulf countries seeks to achieve excellence, while artificial intelligence opens up avenues for collaboration in research, development, and innovation.


Top-tier French brands will present their innovative solutions in consumer goods. In keeping with an Olympic year, tailored-digital solutions for major sporting events and tourism will be showcased, aiming to redefine the leisure sector with connected experiences, fostering gripping interactions between French and Gulf participants.


Companies from GCC countries and France will benefit from the attendance to the ten panel discussions dedicated to the themes listed above as well as targeted and qualified B2B meetings to establish close business ties and discover mutually beneficial investment opportunities.
