US Investors Trust France | Le Cercle Les Echos

LE CERCLE. En dépit de la morosité qui semble s’être emparée de certains acteurs et commentateurs économiques, les investisseurs américains font confiance à Paris et à la France. En 2012, la France est le deuxième pays d’accueil européen des investissements en provenance des Etats Unis


Via Invest in France
TheG2Experience's insight:

Since this article is in French, I have created here a summary in English. I hope you find it enlightening.

This article aims to dispel some of the myths that might still be giving France a bad reputation for business. To accomplish this, here are the facts cited:

- France is the 2nd largest European destination for US investments. France is the 5th economy in the world and 2nd in Europe, according to EUROSTAT.

- France is one of the western european countries with the least number of strike days in the private sector and ranks 3rd in Europe on hourly productivity.

- Other attractive features are a large talent pool and high quality transport and communication infrastructures.

- The Paris region is the 3rd city in the world in the number of Fortune 500 HQs, behind Tokyo and Beijing, and ahead of NY and London.

- 1240 large US companies have established a presence in France, totalling 14,000 locations and 440,000 jobs. In 2012 alone, 156 US companies have established operations in France. US companies are sometimes criticized for favoring work flexibility at the expense of employees' well being, but they are often ranked among the top in national employee satisfaction surveys. FedEx, Microsoft and Google have chosen France as their European hub.

- These successes are also due to the collaboration of various organizations including AmCham Paris, the office of the mayor of Paris and "Paris Development", the economic development agency that helps foreign companies in the process of setting up business in or around Paris.

American Fire Truck Manufacturer Burned by Congress’ Ex-Im Failure | U.S. Chamber of Commerce

American Fire Truck Manufacturer Burned by Congress’ Ex-Im Failure | U.S. Chamber of Commerce | Expand to Global Markets | Scoop.it
"If Ex-Im goes away, companies like us are going to be in trouble" one of the firm's executives says. "Employees will lose their jobs."
TheG2Experience's insight:

A large share of this firm's revenue comes from exports. In order to even bid on contracts to sell the fire trucks and other equipment, many nations require contractors to secure financing from their home country's official ExIm bank. Every major trading nation has one... until now. Now the U.S. just killed its ExIm bank and companies like this one, and many of its suppliers, will have to cut jobs drastically and hope they don't go bankrupt.  WHERE IS THE LOGIC?? Someone please tell me.

This Is The True Size Of Africa

This Is The True Size Of Africa | Expand to Global Markets | Scoop.it
How large is Africa compared to the United States, or Western Europe? Most inhabitants of the latter places might guess it is a little larger, but few would have any idea of the scale of the difference. This has led German graphics designer Kai Krause to produce this map to shake people's perceptions a little.
TheG2Experience's insight:

I think even if you are a well traveled global citizen, your mind will still be blown by this way of looking at Africa. I admit my mind is still reeling, even though I could have sworn I had a good sense of the relative sizes of countries around the world... See that dark brown blob? Wow, the US, really?? And how do you like the UK being the size of Madagascar?!!

See how this company would shrink by 70% if the Export Import bank is closed by the government (i.e. not reauthorized). Now imagine this at the scale of the US... We are already woefully behind other countries in exports and engaging in global trade, this would be the last straw. AND we'd be the only country that does not have this kind of institution so US companies would be penalized on two fronts.

Why is working internationally (sometimes) so frustrating?

Why is working internationally (sometimes) so frustrating? | Expand to Global Markets | Scoop.it
Think about the last time you got frustrated with something or someone?  Most likely something didn’t turn out the way you would have liked it to or someone didn’t say or do what you wanted them to.
TheG2Experience's insight:

Most frustration arises because of the gap between an expectation and whether or not it is met. But for someone to meet an expectation you have, they need to first know about it, and, perhaps even more importantly, you have to know about it yourself! And that’s the heart of the problem.

'Fast track' American leadership: Our view

'Fast track' American leadership: Our view | Expand to Global Markets | Scoop.it
If the U.S. pulls out of Trans-Pacific Partnership, forget about having any say in Asia.
TheG2Experience's insight:

The USA Today editorial board added their voices to the chorus of U.S. trade supporters today, writing that, “Throughout the world, there are 612 bilateral or regional trade pacts, a number that has doubled over the past decade and continues to grow. Just this week, for instance, Australia and China came to terms on what is likely to be No. 613. But one country has been left behind. The United States is a party to just 14, linking it to only 20 nations, most of them small. And yet it is in the USA — a country whose economy has grown faster than most in the developed world in recent years — where some of the most vociferous anti-trade calls are being heeded. Should the deal be derailed at some point, America's standing in the world would take a major hit. Presidents of both parties have spent the past several decades preaching the benefits of free markets and free trade. Now, with China rising and threatening to pull more and more Asian countries into its orbit, the Democrats want America to declare defeat and go home.”
