‘Welcome to Paris’ – France woos post-Brexit business

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls

France’s prime minister said Britain’s vote to leave the European Union is a business opportunity for Paris.

Manuel Valls said the government is working on enhancing the French capital’s attractiveness, especially measures regarding taxes and expatriates’ status.

He spoke to the Le Parisien newspaper in an interview published today.

Mr Valls told international companies: “Welcome in Paris! Come and invest in France!”

Due to the British vote to leave the EU, some businesses based in London are considering leaving for other cities like Dublin, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris to benefit from the large EU common market.
