The INSEAD Africa Club has enjoyed a great relationship with several partners and sponsors over the years. For the 2018 edition of the Africa Business Conference (ABC), INSEAD partnered with Mouvement des Entreprises de France (MEDEF International) for hosting the ABC at the Medef headquarters in the prestigious 7th arrondissement of Paris. Special acknowledgment is owed to Frédéric Morel-Barbier, Head of Africa at MEDEF International, and his team for their dedicated support of the planning and execution of the ABC.
MEDEF International is a non-profit private-funded organisation, created in 1989 by MEDEF, the French Business Confederation. MEDEF International is the most representative organisation of the French private sector at an international level. It is chaired by Mr Frederic Sanchez, CEO of Fives Group.
MEDEF International aims at promoting the French companies’ know-how abroad through collective actions. MEDEF International supports trade, technologic cooperation and investments, long-term partnerships, especially on emerging and developing markets as well as reconstruction markets.
It gathers every year about 7100 French companies already operating in the world, in 85 Business Councils headed by 55 CEOs of major international French companies.
