Retour sur nos 100 ans

An exceptional year of celebration

In 2019, the French-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (CCFN) celebrated its 100 years of existence (1919-2019) as a gateway to the French-Norwegian business community. Since its creation in 1919 in Christiania (Oslo), the CCFN has been an important player in the development of the business links between France and Norway. Ever since, the relations between the two countries have intensified. More than ever, they must be tightened and sustained around actual challenges.

Many opportunities for cooperation have risen around new topics such as innovation, A.I., digital transformation, with a particular focus given to the fight for climate change mitigation. We now look forward to fostering these ties in order to build a sustainable future. Together with our network of committed members and partners, we aim at raising awareness, promoting values of sustainability, cooperation and transformation, and fostering the development of sustainable solutions in various fields (energy, blue economy, mobility sectors and many more).

As part of the 100Y celebration, we celebrated the historical ties between our two countries while gathering our network around forward-looking events. We are very delighted to have shared this exceptional year of celebration with our members and partners during multiple events organised throughout the year, including three major gatherings in Paris, Oslo and Toulouse.

The CCFN and the France-Northern Europe friendship group of the Senate hosted the French-Norwegian Sustainable Blue Growth Forum at the Palais du Luxembourg, premiss of a meaningful celebration.
