On Friday, November 26th 2021, Indonesian French Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IFCCI) successfully organized the biggest wine festival Beaujolais Nouveau. Originated in France, Beaujolais Nouveau celebrates the new wine of the harvest on the third Thursday of November.
Experienced a vacuum in 2020 due to the pandemic, IFCCI’s Beaujolais Nouveau is back offline, combining business with culture. French and Indonesian professionals are gathered in Mandarin Oriental Jakarta Ballroom to enjoy glasses of wine, assisted buffet, while having a chance to network with the community.
The event was commenced with an opening speech from IFCCI’s President Mr. Philippe Augier, continued by French Ambassador H.E. Mr. Olivier Chambard who officially started the event with the first toast accompanied by Mr. Philippe Augier and H.E. Mr. Mohammad Oemar, Indonesian Ambassador in France.

Atalian’s participation in this event is a part of the #CleanIsANewCare campaign to reduce the spread of Covid-19 infection by taking responsibility of shared public spaces.
