This year it was celebrated in Raffles Hotel Jakarta.
In a festive atmosphere, IFCCI gathered dear friends, members and distinguished guests to cherish this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau and celebrate French culture and tradition. The event commenced with speeches by IFCCI’s Chairman, Mr. Philippe Augier, and French Ambassador to Indonesia, H.E. Jean-Charles Berthonnet, who welcomed everyone and made the first toast along with the Ambassador of Austria, H.E Helen Helene Steinhäusl, Pierre Noyer of Weda Bay Nickel and IFCCI Secretary General, and IFCCI's former President Alain Pierre Mignon.
