What is Choose France?

Choose France” is an initiative launched in 2018 by President Emmanuel Macron to attract foreign investment. It showcases France’s economic strengths, robust infrastructure, innovation, skilled workforce, and other competitive advantages. The summit aims to persuade foreign companies to actively contribute to France’s reindustrialization efforts.

Throughout the years, Choose France has become a pivotal event on the agenda of international investors. In 2023, the President of the Republic announced a remarkable 13 billion euros of investments, creating around 8,000 new jobs. These figures highlight the undeniable attractiveness of France, as evidenced by 28 location decisions made by international companies.
