INDIA   Taking care of business In India, the ‘Créative France’ campaign took off during French President François Hollande’s visit during the India-France Business Summit and the ensuing CEO Forum. The forum meets to discuss various business-related matters, such as immediate policy issues to encourage greater trade and investment, and acts as a way for business leaders to highlight their needs, interests and desired policy reforms for government consideration and action. It was here that ‘Créative France’ was formally launched in the country.   UNITED STATES   What happens in Vegas… “La French Tech” was a major success at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, with 190 French startups taking part. As French Minister for the Economy, Industry and Digital Affairs Emmanuel Macron points out, France created 1,500 start ups in 2015 alone, and boasts five so-called ‘unicorns’, rare startups valued at more than US$1 billion. Thirty percent of companies exhibiting at the startup venue Eureka Park at the CES this year were French, making France the third leading representative in this section of the show.   SWITZERLAND   Creativity for industry The ‘Créative France’ campaign attended the World Economic Forum 2016 Annual Meeting last month in Davos.

The Indonesian Governement choosed to enhance its foreign investment attractivements with a new update of the negative investment list release in february 2016.  " The list is developed by the Investment Coordinating Board in coordination with the other line ministries and the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs. The revision removes the foreign ownership cap on over 30 subsectors. Of note, foreign investors can now own a 100 percent stake in some businesses in the tourism industry and web-based marketplaces with more than USD 7.45 million in capital. One other important inclusion is the liberalization of business services, including distribution and warehousing services, from 33 percent to 67 percent. This change was likely the product of a strong advocacy effort by foreign trade associations and embassies in Indonesia. Allowing 100 percent foreign ownership means that companies operating in these sectors will no longer be required to have local partner. Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Darmin Nasution justified keeping foreign ownership limited in certain sectors as a means to create jobs and improve the capacity of Indonesian companies."
