The Catalonia Trade & Investment office in Paris is directed by Christophe Arnoul. He is French and has experience in business development and business deployment on the French market. The Paris office has been up and running since 1989 and is located close to the Champs Elysées. It is ACCIÓ’s largest office. There are also a further seven specialized consultants to provide service to Catalonia’s main export market.
ACCIÓ’s Paris office is the gateway to the main export market for Catalan companies and the office that receives the most requests and completes the greatest number of projects. It mainly works in the design industries, chemicals and energy, and industrial systems.
Although the Paris office mainly focuses on marketing (search for customers, distributors, partners and suppliers) and on deployment projects (incorporation of companies and personnel recruitment), it also specializes in international innovation projects that connect Catalan companies with French technology partners.
