Tourism – Euro Disney (October 15, 2014)

Last week, Euro Disney announced a recapitalization plan, supported by its parent company, “The Walt Disney Company,” which will provide the company with more than a billion euros. This decision confirms the investment that it has been making in France for more than 20 years.

Mr. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, welcomes this decision which will provide Euro Disney with new resources to boost tourism and jobs in France, as well as the attractiveness of our country.

Since it opened, Euro Disney has attracted 275 million visitors (half of them from abroad), generated almost 7% of France’s tourism revenue and created 55,000 jobs. Euro Disney is now the top European tourist destination. The plan that has been announced can only reinforce its success so far.
