Let's build together our future

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS FORUM
ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Let's build together our future



About the event

The « Bilateral Business Forum on Sustainable Development » between Reunion Island and Mauritius was created in 2012, in partnership with the Chambre de Commerce France Maurice (CCIFM) to gather both private and public sector and foster the emergence of business opportunities linked with sustainable development. After this first successful edition, the event has been extended to different countries across the Indian Ocean.

Through exhibitions, high level conferences, BtoB meetings, site visits and business networking, this event has become a genuine platform to interact and share know-how. It’s also a forum to encourage regional economic cooperation.

Following successful bilateral editions across the Indian Ocean, Club Export Réunion decided to make a special edition in 2018, bringing over a hundred of professionals from about 10 neighboring territories. This international edition will focus on new international opportunities for Reunion island know-how and how to improve one’s export strategy thanks to the « Export Exhibition Day » dedicated to the existing initiatives that our partners developed to help export-ready Reunionese companies.
