Paris, March 22, 2016. The “2015 Annual Report: Foreign investment in France. The international development of the French economy” released today analyzes foreign investment decisions in France and their contribution to the French economy. In 2015, 962 investment decisions created or maintained 33,682 jobs, the best figure in the last five years. With an average of 19 decisions made every week, 2015 saw a 27% increase in jobs generated by foreign investment, up from 26,535 in 2014. Foreign companies invested primarily in production/manufacturing operations, which accounted for 30% of all foreign investments in France, generating 16,168 jobs (up from 11,601 in 2014), or 48% of all jobs created or maintained. Another key development was the increase in headquarters, as the number of new global or European headquarters rose sharply from 16 in 2014 to 27 in 2015. German firm Siemens decided in 2015 to make Toulouse (Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées region) the global headquarters for all operations relating to its ‘Val’ range of turnkey automated metro solutions, while Canadian horticulture, agriculture, packaging and environmental technology specialist Premier Tech decided to expand its European headquarters in the Pays de la Loire region, creating a new automated production line and global R&D center.   The number of R&D, engineering and design projects (87) remained high, amounting to 9% of all foreign investment decisions in 2015. Foreign-owned subsidiaries in France were responsible for 28% of all business enterprise R&D expenditure nationwide, spending €8.6 billion.   Foreign investments were received from 53 different countries in 2015, up from 47 in 2014: those from European countries remained predominant (60% of all foreign investment decisions), followed by North America (22%) and Asia (13%), in very similar proportions to 2014. The leading source countries were the United States (18%), responsible for one-quarter of all inward R&D investments, Germany (15%), accounting for 26% of all foreign production/manufacturing projects, Italy (9%), providing 31% of inward investment in logistics, the United Kingdom (8%), responsible for 22% of all foreign investment in retail outlets, and Japan (6%), the fourth leading source of foreign production/manufacturing investment. BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China) represented 7% of inward investments in France (68 investment decisions), including 44 projects from China and Hong Kong. Project numbers were up for many source countries, including Canada (38 projects, +31%), the Netherlands (37 projects, +12%), and Ireland (15 projects, +114%).   France’s thriving regions and cities are often a decisive factor in attracting foreign investment to all of France’s regional economies. Ile de France (Paris region), Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine attracted more than half of all foreign investment decisions. The leading regions by jobs created or maintained were Ile de France (Paris region), Nord-Pas de Calais-Picardie, Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine, and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.   Analysis by business activity shows that Ile de France (Paris region) attracted 64% of all foreign investments involving decision-making centers (mostly first-time investments in France). Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine (20%) and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes (17%) stood out in attracting production/manufacturing projects, as did Ile de France (Paris region) (31%) and Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées (13%) for R&D projects.   Foreign companies currently generate 32% of French exports. Figures from the French National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE) show that more than one-quarter of foreign-owned company turnover in France was generated through exports in 2015, compared with 31% in the United States, 21% in Germany, 25% in the Netherlands, 15% in the United Kingdom, and 30% in Japan. “Foreign investment decisions generated 33,682 jobs in France in 2015, up 27% from 2014, amid fierce international competition to attract investment projects and the employment opportunities they entail. Working alongside its regional partners, Business France has redoubled its efforts to convince foreign investors that France should be a key business location for their projects in Europe, attracting 54% or 522 of the 962 investments recorded this year nationwide,” said Muriel Pénicaud, France’s Ambassador for International Investment and CEO of Business France. Business France is the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy, responsible for fostering export growth by French businesses, as well as promoting and facilitating international investment in France. It promotes France’s companies, business image and nationwide attractiveness as an investment location, and also runs the VIE international internship program.

SILVER ECONOMY

Aysel ÇERKEZ - 24-nov.-2014 08:28:41
Silver Lining in French Economy France’s Silver Economy is turning into a precious commodity, growing at 4% during the past few years and projected to create 300,000 jobs by 2020. The high value resource behind the silver economy is expected to grow healthily, providing an abundant market for French and foreign business. However, the most shocking element of this market is that it has nothing to do with metals.   Products for consumers over the age of 65 In fact the silver economy is a term that refers to the economy that produces products for consumers over the age of 65, who require services tailored to their specific tastes and needs, from accommodation to health and leisure.   According to demographic projections, 23 million French people or simply one third of the population will be over 65 by 2030. Many other European and Western countries are experiencing similar developments in their demographics and their retirees are searching for communities across the continents that are very specific. Furthermore, wealthy retirees from Eastern countries are also looking for lifestyles with a certain quality that they may not be able to find so readily back home.   In France : a focus on health and quality of living Amina Sambou, project manager of the Silver Economy at Ubifrance, is confident that France can excel in servicing the domestic and foreign market: “in France, we have a focus on health and quality of living which has already created a market with a strong infrastructure for retirees who are interested in quality of living.” Therefore it is not a surprise that French companies are experiencing interest from consumers in countries like Japan, South Korea, and China who, according to Mrs. Sambou, are “interested in the French way of ageing.”   New French companies are already popping up in anticipation of vast opportunities in the next decade. Silver Valley is the French answer of California’s Silicon Valley, combining technology and location to create a future for the Silver Economy. Less than 10 kilometers from Paris, this collaboration of French businesses will create a nexus for all sides of the market: research facilities for innovation partners, a business park for product and service oriented businesses, and attractive real state for retirees.   The older market segments will become more relevant for all businesses in the next decade Demographics, such as longer life expectancy, decrease in birthrate and retirement of the ‘baby boomer’ generation are certainly reasons why the older market segments will become more relevant for all businesses in the next decade. However, this is not the only reason why businesses need to stay ahead of the market: seniors in France represent 43% of income, 60% of real estate and 72% of financial investments. Therefore, it’s not just the size of the market but also its focus on high value products, which make it a priority for all business strategists. The French organization in this market is unparalleled.   Six French regions have been chosen to lead the Silver Economy in France Six French regions have been chosen to lead the Silver Economy in France, with each producing its own nexus similar to that of Silver Valley. Another example is Toulouse’s aptly named campaign “So Toulouse.” The 4 th city in France has been recently made famous for being recession proof – a beacon of private sector growth in France over the last decade. Part of the success of this city and region has been its focus on education and technological innovation. This has translated into smart services for seniors, including smart homes, e-health services, and a hospital solely dedicated to the elderly. Also, the region’s status as the 2 nd most popular agro food region in France does not hurt its already fantastic pitch.   So far it seems that a large part of the French know-how has to do with elements rooted in France itself. However, much of the French advantage is exportable, and French companies have been finding successes in such events as last June’s Silver Economy connection in Atlanta.   Two pilot programs with two large senior living and homecare organizations… Sandrine Sauvage-Mack, Senior Trade Advisor at Ubifrance, recounts how the French multi product and service conglomerate La Valeriane was able to secure two pilot programs with two large senior living and homecare organizations: “After a great first impression with Leading Age, the American Federation for the ageing populations, they were certain to add more pilots and clinical trials with American universities and research centers.” Ubifrance, the French agency for export promotion with 80 offices over seas , will continue promote French companies at events dedicated to the French Silver Economy abroad and at home.   Clic here for more information about French companies http://www.ubifrance.com/french-exporters-directory/search.aspx   Or contact The French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in your country.

The Healthcare and Medical Technology Industry in : Overview of a sector of excellence

Cecile LAVIGNE - 28-mai-2014 15:50:20
  The Healthcare and Medical Technology Industry in : Overview of a sector of excellence A major force in the French economy The healthcare industry is a key partner for governments in anticipating and providing solutions geared towards protection, prevention, diagnostics, compensating for disabilities, treatment and improving the daily quality of life of health product users. It plays a critical role in public health, one of the principal challenges facing French society. The healthcare industry (much like the aerospace and luxury sectors) plays a crucial part in preserving France’s industrial base and represents a major comparative advantage for the French economy: it employs more than 200,000 people directly and over 500,000 indirectly, and continues to go from strength to strength. The relative importance of the sector within France’s industrial landscape is greater than in other European economies of a similar size.
