The French and British outdoor trade organizations have decided to cooperate in various fields of common interests. The Outdoor Sports Valley of France and the British Outdoor Industries Association have signed a memorandum for a closer partnership. The alliance of OSV and OIA includes aspects such as sharing of services and information, cross-promotion of events and cooperation on sustainability. OSV's and OIA's members will soon be able to access a joint pool of services and initiatives as well as each federation's expertise on their respective markets. The members of each organization will become associate members of the other group.
