The Franco-British Colloque is an elite networking event very much like the British-American Project, Konigswinter or Bilderberg. Big business sponsor promising politicians, intelligence leaders and top bureaucrats to a get-together in a luxury hotel.
The Franco-British Colloque was founded by BP boss Lord Simon in the 1990s, and has always been corporate-sponsored. The conference committee invite 50 British and 50 French “delegates” to come debate the big issues. Like Bilderberg, this is where corporate Establishment grandees invite younger political faces.
The Colloque typically has two “chairs” who help organise the event, one British, one French. The British chair per 2017 is Lord Adair Turner,the French chair is Pierre-André de Chalendar, boss of French construction giant St Gobain.
Labour MP Sadiq Khan gives the following account of the meeting on 19 January 2006:
- I also attended a Franco-British Colloque with leading French and British Politicians, Business people, academics and professionals. Speakers included George Osborne, the Chancellor Gordon Brown, the French Economic, Finance and Industry Minister Thierry Breton and Adair Turner (Chair of the Pensions Commission). Topics covered included "Europe beyond the constitutional debacle", "Islam; integration or alienation", "China and India; economic threat or opportunity for Europe" and "Energy; between security and environment". It was a fascinating conference with plenty of food for thought for both countries. 
Peter Mandelson notes:
- I have participated for many years on a regular basis in the annual Anglo-German Konigswinter Conference, the Franco-British Colloque, the UK-Spanish Tertulias, the UK-Italian Pontignano and other similar events. I have spoken at numerous Conferences on the future of Europe. For example in the last twelve months, I participated in the Bertelsmann International Forum in Berlin, gave the Den Uyl Lecture in Amsterdam and spoke in Warsaw, Budapest, Madrid and Paris.
Not in Wikipedia, not much online presence
As usual with these kinds of conferences, there is no Wikipedia mention of it, and barely any material found on Google or in the press.
The 2017 conference was sponsored by 4 companies, including EDF Energy and the bank Morgan Stanley.
The British attendees from 2017 include two ministers from the Department of Business, Energy Minister Jesse Norman and Universities Minister Jo Johnson, Charles Roxburgh, the second permanent secretary at the Treasury, three top Foreign Office (FCO) officials — Sir Simon McDonald (FCO permanent under secretary), Angus Lapsley (UK Ambassador to EU Political and Security Committee) and Lord Llewellyn (ambassador to France), Simon Stevens — chief executive of NHS England, Labour MPs Yvette Cooper and Rushanara Ali, Tory MPs Dominic Grieve and George Osborne (who was still an MP then); SNP MPs Tasmina Ahmed Sheikh and Joana Cherry and independent (ex-Ukip) MP Douglas Carswell.
The 2017 business attendees included EDF boss Vincent de Rivaz, Morgan Stanley investment boss Frank Petitgas and former MI6 boss Sir John Scarlett, who is now a Morgan Stanley adviser.
Douglas Flint, chairman of HS BC, and [c]], CEO of Credit Suisse, also attended the 2017 event.
There was also a “special session” addressed by Home Secretary Amber Rudd and De Chalendar on “Progress in tackling climate change following the Paris climate change.” Ministers’ trips are registered at their department, but (as with Jesse Norman) there is no official record of Amber Rudd’s attendance.
