There are several ways to read the 2021 assessment of France’s attractiveness published by the firm EY on Tuesday. If we consider the number of investment projects, it is very positive. For the third consecutive year, France last year remained the most attractive European country for foreign companies.
More affected than its neighbors by the health crisis – the gap had narrowed in 2020 – it even took advantage of the economic rebound to regain a head start. It attracted 1,222 projects, i.e. 24% more than in 2020 and above all slightly more (+2%) than in 2019. A record number.
