American Chamber of Commerce in France

AmCham France was founded by eleven US businessmen in Paris on Thursday, June 28, 1894, making it the oldest US business association overseas! Its stated mission was to "take measures which may facilitate and protect the transactions of business between French and American interests and to collect information to facilitate business operations."

The Chamber’s first major banquet, on July 4th 1895, was attended by the Foreign Minister, the Minister of Commerce and Industry, the US Ambassador, and Frederic Bartholdi, the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty. At this dinner, AmCham President and co-founder Stephen Tyng further defined the Chamber’s role: "Our vocation, in a word, is to be the unofficial hyphen, or trait d’union, between the public authorities and the private enterprises of these two nations, France and the United States." During his farewell address as AmCham President, Tyng added that "the interweaving of French and American interests in a bond of commercial union will be the best contribution we can make to the larger hopes of the coming century."

While AmCham France has undergone many changes since 1894, its fundamental mission remains very similar to what its founding fathers defined.
