French term or phrase: SAEM Chamonix-Bus
Conference on tourism, and this term is included in a list of (mostly local) partners, for example: City of Geneva, Great St. Bernard Tunnel, SAEM Chamonix-Bus.
I think SAEM has to do with economic development (but not sure); is Chamonix-Bus just a bus? (That's what my google searches seem to indicate...)

Société Anonyme d'Economie Mixte -- Don't Translate!
Explanation:
Like "Inc." or "Ltd." it's part of the legal name of a company, so let it be.

It's a joint public and private corporation, i.e. both local government and private investor hold stakes in it.
