We are proud to be members of the following organizations.


The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Washington D.C.

The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Washington D.C. (SACC-DC) is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to the development of useful business relationships between the United States and Sweden. Since 1989 SACC-DC has offered opportunities to explore and develop mutually beneficial U.S. – Swedish professional opportunities through a number of business and social events. Founded in 1989, SACC-DC is one of 19 local chambers across the United States, cooperating under the umbrella organization SACC-USA. Together, the chambers form a nationwide Swedish-American business network (SACC-USA), which has served as a forum for Swedish and American business people since it was founded in 1906.

The main purpose of our chamber is networking and the exchange of trade information. In order to fulfill this we regularly organize luncheons, business clubs as well as other activities. These activities are organized for our members, which include businesses and individuals alike.

U.S.-Ukraine Business Council

The U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC) is a private, non-profit trade association established in 1995 to advance U.S. companies' trade and investment interests in Ukraine's significant emerging market, to advocate for measures to improve conditions for bilateral trade and investment, and to promote strong, friendly bilateral ties.

Based in Washington, DC, the USUBC promotes U.S. and Ukrainian commercial ties through regular interactions with U.S. and Ukrainian business and government leaders, and through the analysis and advocacy of key policy issues impacting U.S. businesses and the future of U.S.-Ukrainian relations. Its membership includes large, well-known companies, as well as smaller private companies interested in fostering a stronger commercial relationship between the United States and Ukraine.


French-American Foundation – France

The French-American Foundation – France is the principal non-governmental organization linking France and the United States at leadership levels. The Foundatiowas created in 1975 on the initiative of numerous politicians, university administrators, and economic authorities, convinced by the need to create, in Paris and New York, a place for debate and regular exchanges to deepen relations between France and the USA. It was on May 18th 1976, during a state dinner in Washington, which brought together Presidents Gerald Ford and Valéry Giscard d’Estaing for celebrations of the bicentennial of the Declaration of independence, that it was officially inaugurated.

A few years later, in 1981 the flagship program was born, the Young Leaders program, which aims to build lasting relations between young, key French and American figures and thos called to high office in their respective countries. Across this Young Leaders program, and equally across all the cycles of meetings and exchanges developed over the years, the French-American Foundation is one of the main actors in this transatlantic relationship today.

Cercle des Européens

Cercle des Européens is a reflection and debate group on European issues, chaired by Noëlle Lenoir, former Minister of France for European Affairs. The Cercle brings together business executives joined by personalities from the political, social, and academic worlds. The Cercle is also a place of exchange and dialogue. It organizes thematic meetings, in partnership with the weekly L'Express, around key figures from the European and world scene who share their own experiences and freely discuss their background and their ideas, as well as their activities in Europe.


Cluster Maritime Français

The French Maritime Cluster (CMF) is an organisation established in 2006 by and for professionals to promote the interests of all sectors of the maritime economy from manufacturing to services. The membership of the CMF is composed of entreprises large and small, competitiveness clusters, federations and associations, laboratories and research centres, colleges and training institutions, local authorities and economic stakeholders, even the French Navy.

Together with its members, the CMF is building a united front for maritime France, a real ecosystem for business development. The Maritime and Coastal Economic Conferences held annually are an example of this. In today's extremely competitive economic environment, it is essential to create synergies among those engaged in the maritime economy, so that the economy as a whole can benefit from the innovative skills of the maritime sector and the business opportunities arising from marine activities.

Experience, insight into the decision making processes 'inside the Washington Beltway,' and an ability to approach the most comprehensive government affairs and regulatory cases are unique qualifications of Blue Star Strategies. Close cooperation and advice in the very complicated case of NATO enlargement ratification and help on the successful strategy for the visa waiver process for my country are just two success stories, which make them efficient, sensitive, and a pleasure to work with.
