As the sixth-largest economy in the world, France has always been open to international talents. The country is endowed with important structural assets: its geographic positioning in the center of the European Union, the quality, diversity, and efficiency of its transport and telecommunications infrastructure, the skills of its workforce and the quality of its human capital, its commercial power, etc.

The “2019 Report on International Investments in France”, published on June 2th, 2020 by Agence Business France, reaffirmed France’s great attractiveness for foreign investors. France is in fact the 1st European country for foreign investments with industrial vocation and R&D.

These foreign investments come from 58 different countries with a predominantly European capital (64% in total). However, the United States leads, with 16.2% of total projects, followed by Germany (15.5%), the United Kingdom (12%), and Italy (8%). The value of French goods exports crossed the bar of 500 billion € in 2019 for the first time allowing a steep reduction in the trade deficit, according to the annual report on foreign trade, made public on February 7, 2020, by the Direction Générale du Trésor (a governmental body tasked with gauging the French economy and advising the government on financial matters).

These numerous strong points make France the first-choice destination for any young talent wishing to develop his professional career by opting for a high-quality course, such as the Bachelor of Business Administration offered by the American Business School of Paris.
