Press release - Paris confirms its position as the leading Financial Center in Europe

Paris, 16 October 2017 - The InfraWeek welcomed today Bruno Le Maire, French Minister of Economy and Finance, who stressed that "France is already highly regarded for the quality of its infrastructure. The French Government will continue to invest in its infrastructure should it be for transportation, broadband, climate change. Alongside the modernisation of its regulatory framework, this creates an attractive landscape for international players - investors, corporates, banks - to develop their activity on the French market, as well as in Europe and globally from Paris. In addition, France benefits from a powerful, competitive, innovative private financing - banks, private equity, complex structuration - backed by recent regulatory improvements. The key asset of this strong financial ecosystem is human capital, served by top ranking higher education and research institutions."
