Profile: Peden Stephane of French-Taiwan chamber of commerce (2021/05/04)

The French Chamber of Commerce and Industry is a non-profit organization created in 1991 to support trade between France and Taiwan. This year is their 30th anniversary. Formosa News reporter Stephany Yang speaks Stephane Peden, the chamber’s general manager, to learn more about the organization.

Peden is from Brittany peninsula in northwestern France. He came to Taiwan in 2006 for a university exchange in Kaohsiung. Due to his passion for helping French expats in business-related matters in Taiwan, Peden became the manager of the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 2017. One of his current projects is connecting the French and Taiwanese fashion industries.

I think right now we can see the designers who will showcase the design some of them are linked to France or are France. In the future, I think that if they continue to promote the idea of sustainability and action, mixed with fashion and design, it will attract companies to see what they're doing. If they follow this, which is pretty new in the fashion industry, they will be successful and we can help them as well to introduce them to people in France and see how they can cooperate and bridge their ideas between French and Taiwan.

The French Chamber of Commerce was established in Taiwan in 1991. The chamber has a business center in Nanjing Fuxing, providing office rental, company registration, virtual office rental, and other services.

We help French and international businesses to come to Taiwan to do business in Taiwan and access Taiwan market. We are not just working with corporate big companies, we are also working with entrepreneurs. We have a business center for that and we help them to recruit. Once they are ready to fly with their own wings, they can participate in networking events.

The chamber also organizes networking events and other events every year to connect Taiwanese and French businesses. According to Stephane, there's been a rise of entrepreneurs interested in working in Taiwan in the past year.

Right now we estimate around like 200 or 250 French businesses in Taiwan. We have a lot of entrepreneurs that are trying to come to Taiwan. During the pandemic, I didn't see a tremendous increase to the entrepreneurs or the cooperation coming to Taiwan, but I see real interest in the company. Especially companies that were in China, and they couldn't get the way out during the Chinese New Year because they were stuck out of China. They couldn't go back to China so they stayed in Taiwan. Right now, they're thinking of sending parts of the team to Taiwan to manage a business. I think in the future due to increased attention due to the pandemic, probably Taiwan will attract more businesses.

As the organization enters its 30th year, Peden wants the chamber to be even more socially responsible and to implement green initiatives. As of this year, the chamber has ditched the use of paper, going digital with its office processes.

法國工商會成立30周年 執行長史蒂芬專訪

法國工商會(CCIFT) 成立於1991年,是一個非營利組織,致力於促進法國與台灣之間的貿易。今年適逢組織成立30週年,民視英語新聞記者專訪法國工商會(CCIFT) 執行長史蒂芬,了解他們的重點工作。

法國工商會(CCIFT)執行長史蒂芬,來自法國西北部的布列塔尼半島。他2006年來台,在高雄當交換學生。因為史蒂芬熱心投入法國移民在台灣的商務相關事務,他在2017年成了法國工商會執行長 。連結法國和台灣的時尚產業,是他現在努力的目標之一。

"現在我們可以看到,之後會發表作品的幾位設計師,有些就跟法國有關係。我認為,如果未來他們持續推廣永續利用和社會關懷的理念,結合時尚設計,是會吸引一些公司的。如果他們有跟上這波時尚界的新潮流,而且成功,我們也可以把他們引介到法國去,看看他們會怎麼合作,讓法國和台灣之間交流。"

法國商會1991年在台灣成立,商會的商務中心在南京復興,提供辦公室租用、公司註冊、虛擬辦公室租用等服務。

[[法國工商會執行長 史蒂芬]]
"我們協助法國和國際企業來台灣拓展業務、進入台灣市場。除了大企業,我們也會跟創業家合作。我們有一個商務中心,能幫他們徵才。只要他們準備好了,就可以進一步去參與社交。"

商會每年還安排各種活動,幫台灣和法國企業牽線。史蒂芬說,一年以來,有越來越多的企業有興趣來台灣工作。

[[法國工商會執行長 史蒂芬]]
"目前,在台灣的法國公司大概有200或250家。還有很多想來台灣的企業家,只是疫情期間,真的能來的人數,還有合作並沒有大幅成長,但對台灣感興趣的程度絲毫沒有減少。尤其是本來在中國的公司,在中國過年那時候因為疫情的關係,他們沒辦法回到中國,所以他們留在台灣。現在他們也考慮將部分團隊派到台灣來。我認為,如果是因為疫情而引起關注,台灣之後應該會吸引更多的企業過來。"

法國工商會今年邁入第30年,史蒂芬希望商會能承擔更多社會責任,並落實環保。今年開始,他們改採數位化辦公,減少紙張的使用。
