The CEPII's Business Club
  The CEPII Business Club is a forum where business leaders, economists and financial experts may discuss their experiences and analyses.
Created by the CEPII, the Business Club brings together companies from different sectors (industry, banking, financial institutions, services etc.) as well as members of trade associations, trade union representatives and managers of public administrations and government. The Club is a not-for-profit association, chaired by Louis Gallois, Chief Executive Officer of EADS. It is administered by a Board of 12 members.
Its role  

The CEPII Business Club provides its members with full, reliable and forward-looking information about the world's economic outlook. By setting out medium term scenarios for future trends affecting the world economy, the Club gives business managers insight into the workings of the international economy, which is vital to all strategic planning.

The CEPII Business Club organises meetings with top French and foreign experts. These may be monthly meetings, breakfasts and seminars on current issues affecting the international economy.

By participating at these meetings, corporate members can follow the major developments of the international economy, in a regular and interactive manner.
