Published: May 2015

Facing a rapidly aging population, growing inequalities, strong urbanization, major territorial imbalance, soaring house prices, “middle class expectations, pollution challenges and new protest movements, authorities have to invest more”, as the daily paper Les Echos pointed out. Spending on social welfare has reached 8% of the current GDP against 4% in 2000. In this context of strong economic growth what are the business opportunities and possible collaborations for French companies?
