France: Emerging new business frontiers

For the 4th time the French-Swedish Business Forum is organized by the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in France.

Emmanuel Macron, the President of France and his party “La République en Marche” won a solid functional majority in June which enables him to start working on his business-friendly programme of reforms. He has promised to begin with the labour market in order to free up job creation. Europe's third biggest economy has suffered years of weak growth, high unemployment and budget deficits. Emmanuel Macron will be judged on his results and expectations are high. 

The forum is dedicated to company leaders, investors, entrepreneurs, developers, media, government representatives and other stakeholders within the business ecosystem, with interest in French-Swedish business development and new opportunities for growth and international exchange.

Welcome to a seminar about the new French business climate, opportunities and challenges!

Thursday 28th of September
