Economic diplomacy – Launch of the second edition of Invest in France Month (October 4, 2016)


The second edition of Invest in France Month is being held throughout October. Events are being held at some 66 embassies to promote France’s appeal to local economic decision-makers. Jean-Marc Ayrault and Matthias Fekl will attend some of these events during their international travels.

The goal of this initiative is to make economic decision-makers and opinion-shapers aware of France’s assets, reforms relating to competitiveness, and measures taken to better welcome international investors.

Several embassies will explore investments in strategic sectors: in health, the financial industry, the greater Paris area, and Paris as a jumping-off point for investing in Africa.

Last year, more than more than 2,000 economic decision-makers and journalists attended the various events held in 50 countries.
