France retains pole-position for foreign investment in 2021, report shows

Before the Covid-19 pandemic hit Europe in 2020, France had managed to climb to first place in terms of direct foreign investment, ahead of Germany and even the UK.

This position has now been confirmed in the latest report published this Monday by EY (formerly Ernst & Young).

Last year there were 985 foreign investment projects in France, 975 in the UK and 930 in Germany, according to EY.

However, this high ranking is tempered by the fact that the number of investment projects is falling across Europe.

Investment is slightly more stable in Germany than in France, and the UK has fared quite well, despite Brexit.

French President Emmanuel Macron rejoiced the EY report in a tweet, saying it was "excellent news with concrete repercussions."
