Chamber News | Edito Bastille Day’23

Chamber news

July 14, 2023

Dear Members, friends and partners,


Today is Bastille Day, the French National Day.


On this historic day, we come together to commemorate a momentous event that changed the course of history forever: Bastille Day. 14 July is a symbol of liberation, unity, and the unshakeable spirit of the people. It is a day that reminds us of the power of resilience, the strength of the human spirit, and the pursuit of freedom.

Bastille Day, also known as Fête Nationale in France, marks the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, a pivotal moment in the French Revolution. The collapse of these stone walls represented the dismantling of tyranny, ushering in a new era of democracy, equality and human rights.

As we reflect on the significance of this day, it is essential to remember the values it represents. Bastille Day reminds us that freedom is not given, but earned through the unwavering commitment of individuals fighting for a just society. It is a day to honor those who fought for their rights and to recognize our responsibility to preserve and nurture those hard-won freedoms.

In today’s world, where challenges and struggles persist, the spirit of Bastille Day remains as relevant as ever. It reminds us to confront the barriers that stand in the way of progress, free ourselves from the shackles of injustice, and fight for a society that upholds the principles of equality, tolerance, and solidarity. It urges us to remain united in our diversity and to work towards a future where every individual can flourish and fulfill their potential.

On this auspicious day, let us celebrate not only France’s rich history but also the universal values that Bastille Day represents. Let us express our gratitude to the brave souls who fought for freedom, and encourage each other to continue their noble cause. Together, let us imagine a world where freedom knows no borders, where liberty is a birthright, and where the flame of hope burns in everyone’s heart.

Happy Bastille Day to one and all!


President of the French-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce

Guillaume DOUVILLE
Director of the French-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce

⚠️ The Celebration of Bastille Day’23 will happen on the 20th of July.

Back to | CCFL Business Delegation to Alytus

Chamber news

March 13, 2023

Vilnius, Lithuania – On March 9, a business delegation from the CCFL (French- Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce) arrived in Alytus for a series of meetings and factory tours. The delegation included executives and representatives from various French businesses as well as board members and team of CCFL interested in exploring trade and investment opportunities in Alytus.

The highlight of the visit was a meeting with the Mayor of Alytus, Nerijus Cesiulis, at the Alytus City Hall. During the meeting, the delegation discussed various topics related to business, investment, economic development and living in Alytus.

After the meeting, the delegation visited three local factories to gain a better understanding of the Lithuanian manufacturing sector. The first stop was Alita, a leading producer of alcoholic beverages in Lithuania part of MV Group. The delegation learned about the company’s production process, product portfolio, and export activities as well as investment plan for the coming years.

Next, the delegation visited GlassLT, a glass processing company that specializes in the production of tempered and laminated glass for various industries. The delegation received a guided tour of the factory and learned about the company’s advanced production technologies.

Finally, the delegation visited Kauno Grūdai, a leading Lithuanian producer of grain products. The delegation learned about the company’s visions and mission, product range, and export activities.

The delegation ended its mission with a visit to the Alytus vocational training centre. There, the delegation was able to meet and discuss with the students as well as explore the different facilities used in their training. The centre shared various international agreements with more than 10 French educational institutions.

Speaking about the visit, the President of the CCFL, Anthony Poullain, said, “I have lived in Lithuania for 16 years. For personal reasons, Alytus was the first Lithuanian city I visited. As President of the French-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce, it is not my intention to focus solely on Vilnius. When I visit France and meet potential investors, I do not want to present business opportunities only in the capital, I want to present all business opportunities in Lithuania to business representatives. Today we have come to find out how we can present Alytus to potential French investors.”


The visit of the business delegation from CCFL to Alytus is a testament of the willingness to grow economic ties between France and Lithuania. The visit is expected to contribute to the further development of trade and investment relations between the two countries.

Thanks to the municipality of Alytus for its welcome and to the representatives of Alita, GlassLT, Kauno Grūdai and Alytus vocational center for their availability in sharing their projects and opening their companies to our delegation.
