The World Trade Center Rennes Bretagne announced the creation of its newest club, the USA club, during a workshop organized on December 6th 2018 with the US Consulate for Western France and the US Embassy in Paris. During this workshop several American experts (SelectUSA, CASE, ALTIOS International, Thorelli & Associates, Registrar Corp – Europe and Business France) as well as local companies (Groupe Roullier and AMA) presented the key steps to trade successfully with the United States.
In Brittany alone, 126 companies are owned or majority owned by American companies, pension funds, investors etc… ; which represents 27% of all foreign owned businesses in the area and makes the United States the first foreign investor in Brittany.
The goal of this club is to create a place where local companies can network with other companies working with the United States or working directly with American companies. The next meeting of the USA club will take place in March 2019.
