Invest in France

Business France Danmark - 31-mars-2017 15:34:23

Pressemeddelelse, København den 23. marts 2017 For anden gang siden 2002 er Danmark det land i Norden, som har skabt flest job i Frankrig gennem sine investeringer i landet. Der var i 2016 tale om et reelt boom i de danske investeringer med 18 projekter, som skaber omkring 550 nye jobs i Frankrig. Danske virksomheder investerer hovedsageligt i produktion (44%), og i 2016 var det farma- og biotekbranchen, der tiltrak den største andel af investeringerne (28%). De danske investeringer i Frankrig nåede i 2016 et historisk højt niveau. Novo Nordisk bidrog med en investering på omkring 750 mio kr. i en udvidelse af sin fabrik i den franske by Chartres sydvest for Paris; en investering som ventes at skabe 250 nye arbejdspladser. I landbrugssektoren indgik DLG i et 50-50 joint-venture med den franske landbrugskoncern Agrial under navnet Ouestmin . Dette fælles selskab investerer 82 mio. kr. i en ny fabrik til kvægmineraler i Bretagne-området, som udgør hjertet i den franske kvægproduktion. Her skabes 35 nye arbejdspladser. «Bortset fra 2009, som også var et godt år, har danske virksomheder ikke lagt så mange investeringer i Frankrig siden 1993 . Danske datterselskaber i Frankrig tæller i forvejen omkring 41.000 ansatte ; det er en større tilstedeværelse end i f.eks. Finland . Frankrig kan ikke ønske sig noget bedre, end når end en dansk industrivirksomhed siger, at vi er et attraktivt land ” udtaler den franske Ambassadør i Danmark, François Zimeray. Og han tilføjer, at det kun er starten : ”når man ser på det seneste store investeringsprojekt, nemlig LM Wind Power , som vil investere 895 mio. kr . i en ny fabrik i Cherbourg i Normandiet med forventet 550 nye jobs, så er det et synligt bevis på opblomstringen af en industrisektor i Frankrig, som er konkurrencedygtig og åben mod verden!”. De flotte tal, som de danske virksomheder står for, kommer i øvrigt på et tidspunkt, hvor Frankrig generelt er et populært land at investere i: Frankrig tiltrak sidste år ialt 1.117 nye investeringsprojekter fra udlandet , hvilket er 16% mere end i 2015, med en forventet stigning i beskæftigelsen på 30.108 jobs.     Business France er en halvoffentlig organisation under det franske Udenrigsministerium, som bistår franske eksportvirksomheder på de internationale markeder og arbejder med at tiltrække og fastholde udenlandske investeringer i Frankrig. Organisationen har til formål at styrke Frankrigs eksport samt at fremme landets image som et attraktivt investeringsland. Business France administrerer ligeledes det internationale V.I.E traineeprogram (Volontariat International en Entreprise).  Business France blev dannet 1. Januar 2015 ved en fusion mellem UBIFRANCE og AFII (Agence française pour les investissements internationaux) . Business France har 1.500 medarbejdere i Frankrig og i 70 lande verden over, og samarbejder deruover tæt med både offentlige og private franske aktører.
