VIE - French International Internship Program
During his visit to the United Arab Emirates, Mr. Edouard Courtial, Minister of State for Overseas French Affairs, chaired the Awards Ceremony for the 4th "Grand Prix V.I.E" (a French International Internship Program). The ceremony was organised in the UAE and was held at the residence of the French Ambassador.
Among the people recognised and awarded by the Minister for their commitment in favour of the VIE Program, were four young French people and two companies (TOTAL MARKETING and BNP PARIBAS). This year, this competition has evolved to allow the companies to participate. The first objective was to increase the companies’ awareness of this program and secondly, to reward the most interesting initiatives.
Thanks to the support of all the French team of the Export, the ceremony was a great success. Nearly half of the 160 young French professionals attended the event, as well as several French businessmen. This event was a great opportunity to network on a professional level where participants could exchange and promote ideas regarding the VIE program.
