Easy access to the American market for a regional delegation


The Region Sud has been developing ties with California over the past several years through a collective initiative carried out by the alliance of risingSUD, Provence Promotion, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Var, Team Côte d’Azur, Eurobiomed,  the Pôle Mer Méditerranée, Capenergies, and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry International. In 2017, this initiative led to the signing of a partnership between the Region Sud and the City of San Diego.

Now, for the second consecutive year, a delegation of regional companies* seeking to access the US market will be in California from November 11 to 15 to meet the potential partners

This delegation, led by Bernard DEFLESSELLES (president of risingSUD, Member of the National Assembly, and Regional Councillor), will benefit from the “Business Starter” individualised support programme that is organised in 3 phases : upstream preparation, business tour, and post-mission follow-up. This programme has been jointly developed with Team France Export.
