Facts & Figures on France's Investment Attractiveness

From: Invest in France Agency

In the competition with other European countries to attract inward investment projects, France boasts a number of key strengths underpinning its investment attractiveness.

These advantages include:
- A large, dynamic market in Europe.
- A skilled, productive workforce.
- Recognized support to foster innovation.
- A plentiful supply of commercial real estate.
- Dense, high-quality transport infrastructure.
- High-quality energy and telecommunications at competitive rates.
- Renowned quality of life.

According to KPMG’s “Competitive Alternatives” biennial guide to business costs in over 100 cities in nine different countries, France stands out for having particularly attractive business setup costs, comprising labor costs, facility costs, transport, utility costs (electricity, natural gas, telecommunications) and corporate tax. In the 2012 edition, France was ranked fourth among the countries compared, up two places from sixth in the previous rankings (2010).
