Paris ranks 2nd among 20 "Cities of influence" according to a survey by Colliers International

Paris EUROPLACE welcomes the results of a survey conducted by Colliers International, a leading global commercial real estate company, which ranks Paris 2nd after London among 20 “cities of influence”, in other words 1st in the EU27.

 “Paris is the leading market when it comes to economic output/orientation, future skills and capacity and affordability/cost,” points out the report, which has just been released.

 This analysis is based on factors which fall into four areas, explains Colliers International:

1. The size/orientation of economic output and the workforce;

2. The size/skills of the latent and emerging talent pool;

3. The cost and affordability of the city - as a place to live and save, and in terms of the cost of labour/ total cost of office occupation;

4. The country risk associated with the market, and the inherent risk/ challenges presented by labour laws.

 Arnaud de Bresson, Chief Executive of Paris EUROPLACE, stated: “In a context of Brexit, this confirms Paris major cards for attracting firms which consider rebalancing their activities and relocating in the EU.
