It was established in July 1973 with an agreement between the French Republic and the Swiss Confederation and brings together the Cantons of Geneva and Vaud, the Prefectures of Rhône-Alpes, Ain and Haute-Savoie, the Rhône-Alpes region, the départements of Ain and Haute-Savoie, and the ARC syndicat mixte (French legal structure for cooperation between public authorities of different types). The CRFJ sets common development strategies for the France-Geneva region and is a driving force in the implementation of projects of common interest.
