France China Trophies

During the third France China Trophy Ceremony held on November 22 in Beijing, the Entrepreneurship award went to a French SME, A.S. Architecture-Studio, for its ambitious and successful implantation in China.

Over 500 guests gathered in the magnificent setting of the Beijing Wanda Sofitel Hotel for the French Gala organized by the CCIFC Beijing.

The jury of the France China Trophy 2014 also saluted the track record of 4 French large corporate groups nominated for the Growth Award: Air France-KLM, BioMérieux, Pierre Fabre and Valeo. At the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the France-China diplomatic relations, we have indeed decided to mark the occasion by awarding a single prize, because Growth implies a certain audacity with the right alliance strategy.

The winner of the 2014 Growth award was later unveiled in Paris on November 25th during a conference organized by the CCIP at Hotel Potocki: the Valeo Group was selected for its exceptional growth in China, in terms of turnover over an extended period and successful alliances.

The "France China Trophies" are organized by the consulting firm OC&C Strategy Consultants, in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Paris Ile de France (CCIP), the CCIFC and an independent think tank named "Premier Cercle".

The awards aim to promote the importance of France-China relationships in the media, among French and Chinese firms, and to highlight and reward the most remarkable success stories from French firms in China. They demonstrate that China is – and will long remain – a key strategic priority for many French firms and show how reciprocity can be mutually beneficial to both China and France.

Each year an independent jury selected 2 to 4 French companies based in China as winners and reward their results and achievements in terms of audacity, alliance, growth and entrepreneurship.
