Who we are? The FACC Carolinas is a not-for-profit organization serving both North and South Carolina.
Our mission is to foster business relationships between France and the United States as well as to serve the ongoing business needs of corporate and individual members throughout North Carolina and South Carolina.
How do we do that? The FACC Carolinas achieves these objectives by facilitating information sharing, networking and by offering international business services to its members.
Late 2015, Christian Depret-Bixio was elected President of the Chapter and soon thereafter the chapter became the French American Chamber of Commerce of the Carolinas, now covering both North Carolina and South Carolina.
The FACC Carolinas is also welcoming Jean-Louis Vanderstaeten as its new Executive Director.
The Central SC Alliance is a full-service, professional economic development organization whose core mission is to assist in the formulation and promotion of programs designed to encourage, enhance, and foster economic development and to recruit capital investment and jobs to the counties in the Central SC Region. As South Carolina's oldest and second largest regional economic development alliance, we represent over 20 percent of the landmass in South Carolina (5,952 square miles) and over 500,000 people in the workforce. Since 1994, working together with our allies and partners, we have attracted $11.4 billion in capital investment and 65,000 new jobs to the Central SC region.
