Tax and Regulations Committee
France is implementing new reforms in several fields of the economy which may create business opportunities for existing players and potential new entrants.
France’s regulatory environment should enhance and sustain the growth of business in France, with the deregulation of certain markets (transportation, health industry, energy, etc.), an increased flexibility and foreseeability in employment relationships brought by the recent labor law reform, more flexible rules applicable to corporations, and a new framework for Data Protection in the EU (GDPR). In the context of the Brexit, these changes should also increase the attractiveness of Paris as one of the major world financial centers.
What are the key French regulations impacting the investments and businesses of Japanese and foreign companies in France? How will these reforms help the development and enhance the profitability of their businesses in France?
This seminar will be delivered by Raphaël Chantelot and Emmanuel Tricot, Partners at the head office of LPA-CGR avocats in Paris.
