FIDIC

The acronym FIDIC stands for "Fédération Internationale Des Ingénieurs-Conseils", French for the "International Federation of Consulting Engineers". The fact that the organisation has a French title bears testimony to its foundation in 1913 by three countries each wholly or partly francophone. The founding member countries of the FIDIC were Belgium, France and Switzerland.
