Welcome to FIBA

As the UK’s Ambassador to France, I welcome all initiatives that boost relations between France and the United Kingdom. The FIBA network brings together a broad range of Britons living and working in the Rhône-Alps, many with businesses that link up with the UK and the wider international business arena.

The UK and France have been great trading partners for centuries. Trade between the two countries in our modern world is vital to the interests of both partners, with over €20 billion of goods and services flowing both ways every year.

The UK’s economy is growing again after the recession.  We have a flexible labour market and highly competitive tax rates.  So the UK is a great place to invest and an excellent platform for French companies to export into European and world markets.

British people pay 17 million visits to France every year for work, or to enjoy all that France has to offer as a tourist destination. So there’s real potential to build even greater links between our two countries.

International networks have never been more important to develop business opportunities and FIBA can help you expand your network in the Rhône Alps and beyond. 

So, if you’re looking to meet English speaking professionals in Lyon and the Rhône Alps, FIBA is a great place to start!

Warmest regards,

Sir Peter Ricketts
The UK’s Ambassador to France

How to join

A warm welcome to the FIBA web-site!

After the referendum vote, with Britain voting to leave the European Union, FIBA’s role for fostering positive international business relations has never been more relevant !
We’re based in Lyon, which is one of Europe’s leading and most attractive metropoles, continuing to grow and now part of a much bigger region in France.
FIBA is one of the leading international business groups in Lyon. If you’re looking to meet others interested in international business, live in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, speak English and are motivated to build stronger commercial ties with the UK, FIBA is the place to be!
