Our know-how at the service of the shipbuilding industry

To quote the French Maritime Cluster, "France, with 11 million square kilometres of exclusive economic zone, 97% of which are in the Overseas Territories, has the world's 2nd largest maritime area".

The French maritime economy is therefore a reality that the French Government has taken full measure of by creating a Ministry of the Sea on 6 July 2020. This ministry is responsible for drawing up and implementing the government's policy in the field of the sea in its various national and international aspects, particularly in terms of the environment, the maritime economy, and maritime influence.

In parallel with governmental actions, groups act in the service of the French maritime economy, such as GICAN, of which the group has been a member since the beginning.

GICAN, Groupement des Industries de Construction et Activités Navales

GICAN is a professional union that brings together nearly 200 industrialists and organisations from the French maritime sector.

The aim of this group is to promote the development of the French maritime industry through 3 main missions:

1. Defend the interests of the French maritime industry
2. Promote French maritime technological and industrial expertise
3. To support the harmonious development and competitiveness of the naval industry and the maritime industry sector
