France among the top 5 most attractive countries

Audrey Lucbernet - 31/05/19

A.T. Kearney has just published its annual Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index ranking, featuring France in the Top 5 of the most attractive major countries for the first time.

It’s good news for the French economy, which has just gone up two places to join the Top 5 with the United States, Germany, Canada and the United Kingdom. It now ranks ahead of Japan, China and Australia as one of the countries likely to attract the most investment over the next three years. According to the institute, France’s new position in the ranking of attractive markets can be explained by "the improvement in the business climate" and "the recent reduction in the corporate tax rate". Among the other Top 5 countries, the United States maintains pole position thanks to " sustained economic expansion in recent years". Germany has gone up a place thanks to "strong competitiveness indicators and technological and digital infrastructure initiatives". Canada has benefited from " investment stimulus efforts", despite falling once place. As for the United Kingdom, it remains in fourth position, "despite the uncertainty surrounding Brexit".

A.T. Kearney is an American economic and fiscal strategy consulting firm that publishes an annual "confidence index" based on data from an exclusive survey of 500 executives of large global companies.

THE STORY BEHIND CREATIVE FRANCE   Créative France is the story of accentuating the ‘creative’, both literally and figuratively.   It’s the story of a different approach, of the spark ignited by phrases and by words and images. It’s the story of an airliner that gains a second deck, of a coding school that becomes a nexus for learning, of a pastry that is coveted like a precious jewel.   It’s the story of a strong visual identity that is at once bold, elegant, prominent, modern, dynamic, surprising, flexible and unifying.   It’s the story of a creative, unconventional campaign that highlights our country’s full range of strengths, skills and savoir-faire. And for good reason – France is at the forefront of technology, design, industry and education, to name but a few sectors.   It’s the story of France today: solid fundamentals enhanced by an outstanding ability to innovate and a c
