While the global climate has never been so uncertain, the 2022 edition of the Transatlantic Business Club, organized by Business France, in partnership with AmCham France and the United States Embassy in France, welcomed more than 100 representatives of large American firms established in France and of French businesses established in the United States.
This year, the Transatlantic Business Club was able to count on the exceptional participation of:
– Denise Campbell Bauer, Ambassador of the United States of America to France and Monaco, who discussed the historical ties that unite France and the United States, as well as the strength of cooperation that exists between the two countries.
– Olivier Becht, Minister Delegate, with responsibility for Foreign Trade, Economic Attractiveness and French Nationals Abroad, who underlined in his speech the strong presence of American firms in France.
“The United States has been responsible for more than 1,330 new investment projects in France since 2017, which have created nearly 46,000 jobs throughout the country. American businesses are the leading source of R&D expenditure in France, accounting for US$1.7 billion.”
– Éric Labaye, President of École Polytechnique, who spoke about the challenges of developing artificial intelligence and highlighted the university’s various international projects.
– Pascal Cagni, Chairman of Business France, Ambassador for International Investment, who recalled the position of the United States as the leading investor in France and cited the main pillars of France’s renewed economic attractiveness.
“The United States has long been the leading foreign investor in France.”
Furthermore, such an event was the ideal opportunity to discuss topical issues. Two panels were held during the Transatlantic Business Club 2022, one relating to solutions for businesses in France in a tight labor market, as well as the challenges related to new professions, and the other focusing on the deployment of artificial intelligence in industry and the challenges it faces.
The event enjoyed support from several sponsors, namely ShubertCollin Associés, EY, FedEx, DLA Piper, ESSEC Business School and Johnson & Johnson, as well as the presence of many renowned businesses, namely ManpowerGroup, IPSOS, OTIS, Aptar, Oracle, Janssen, Emerson and HPE.
