The CCIFP Gala is one of the most important annual events organised by the French-Polish Chamber of Commerce, associating almost 460 Polish and French companies. It is worth noting that France is one of the biggest foreign investors in our country and that the cumulative value of French investments amounts to almost 18 billion euros, resulting in 250.000 new jobs.
