Attractiveness of France for R&D


Every year Ernst & Young records how many foreign investment projects are established in each country and, using this data, it has devised a “Barometer of French Attractiveness”. Entitled “France, a place for global investment?”, the 2010 edition of the barometer highlights an increase in new R&D jobs of nearly +142% between 2008 and 2009. New jobs linked to 41 foreign investment projects probably attracted by the R&D tax credits system that the authors consider “one of the world’s most attractive tax regimes”.
