More than 15 billion euros of investments, including 4 billion from Microsoft, and 1.2 billion from Amazon… This Monday, the 7th edition of the Choose France summit opens in Versailles, during which 180 bosses Foreigners are expected to announce new construction or expansion of factories in the country. Proof that France has become attractive again for multinationals? Yes, assures Bruno Bonnell. Guest of Europe 1, the Secretary General for Investment in charge of France 2030, underlines that “a dynamic is being created in the country”.

“We have been the most attractive country for five years,” he insists. Despite the closure of factories between 2008 and 2017, “today there are companies being built, factories opening, and that is what must be highlighted”.

Training, a key point in France’s attractiveness

For Bruno Bonnell, the attractiveness of France can be explained by several reasons, starting with training. “In the France 2030 plan, there are two billion euros devoted to opening schools, such as the battery, hydrogen or nuclear schools. Today, we find competence in France “Finding skills in this territory will mean that mechanically, there will be businesses that will set up shop.”

Added to this, according to the Secretary General for Investment in charge of France 2030, is the country’s fiscal stability “since 2017″. Finally, it is the synergies that would attract multinationals. “When Solvay decides to hand over a rare earth company to France, or when the small Spanish company FertigHy decides to make carbon-free fertilizers, it is because there is a plan that is clear, there are synergies that can be done on an industrial level”, explains Bruno Bonnell.

Finally, according to him, the Olympic Games could also give a renewed interest in France. “I think it puts the country on the podium of nations. We must take advantage of it. It will attract foreigners who will see, in addition to all the economic aspects, the beauties of France”, he concludes at the microphone of Europe 1.
