"CULTURE AND ECONOMY"?


Cultural exchange is a necessary condition for the development of international contacts which respect each person's specificities. Knowledge of the culture of the other is an obligation to establish lasting and balanced economic exchanges. 

The Network's action is part of this mindset.

A member undertakes to be a spokesperson for the Network in his region and to be involved in his actions. 

The strength of the Network lies, among other things, in its address book and in everyone's willingness to engage in concrete exchanges.
