Join this HKGCC webinar to find out how Hong Kong-based companies can tap into opportunities in France’s financial sector

Emmanuel Macron's re-election as President of France has been welcomed across the European Union and beyond, and provides some stability amid an uncertain global geopolitical environment.

The second largest economy in the Eurozone, France is currently enjoying an economic rebound as activities return to normal. Growth in 2021 was 7%, and unemployment has fallen to below pre-pandemic levels. His re-election gives President Macron the green light to continue his programme of economic and labour reforms, which have been successful in revitalizing the economy.

Paris has long been one of the E.U.'s major financial centres. How has the city capitalized on the opportunities created by Britain's exit from the bloc?

The capital city has also been making major strides in its ambitions to become a fintech hub, with investment growing rapidly in recent years. The fintech sector has enjoyed a further boost from the rapid shift towards digitalization during the pandemic. What are the latest developments for the fintech sector in the country?

As the global business landscape revives, and French businesses seek to connect with overseas investors and trading partners, how can Hong Kong-based companies tap into the growing opportunities in the French financial sector?

At this webinar on 25 May, François Haas, Chief Representative for Asia-Pacific, Banque de France Asia Office, and Olivier Vigna, Deputy CEO, Paris EUROPLACE, will discuss the French economic outlook and other developments, including:

• Challenges for Monetary and Fiscal Policies
• Prospects for the financial sector and the economy

Don't miss this chance to learn more about the latest developments in France, its thriving financial sector and the opportunities for Hong Kong businesses.
