The permanent Secretariat in Amsterdam  plays a crucial role in initiating and coordinating the activities which directly or indirectly affect the scope and strength of the FCI network. Numerous projects are acted upon in close cooperation with the technical committees and the FCI Executive Committee. 

FCI members also frequently seek advice from the Secretariat in a wide variety of situations.  The full-time FCI staff has been responding to these needs for four decades. As an experienced professional team they enjoy supporting FCI members and look forward to meeting the challenges of the fast-growing factoring industry in the years ahead.
