Why Sell into France?

France is the world’s fifth-largest economy and Europe’s third largest economy after Germany and the UK. It has substantial agricultural resources and maintains a strong manufacturing sector. A dynamic services sector accounts for an increasingly large share of economic activity and is responsible for most job creation in recent years. France has an educated population, first-rate universities, and a talented workforce. It has a modern business culture, sophisticated financial markets, strong intellectual property protections, and innovative business leaders. The country is known for its world-class infrastructure, including high-speed passenger rail, maritime ports, extensive roadway networks and public transportation, and efficient intermodal connections. In 2019, France was the 9th largest global market for foreign direct investment inflows with a year-on-year increase of 2%. There are more than 28,000 foreign-owned companies doing business in France.

France has a robust ecommerce economy which declined due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was the worst hit EU member state by the pandemic and as a result their economy slowed, but is expected to return to pre-pandemic levels in 2022. The strict lockdown has led many consumers in France to shop online or to buy goods like groceries digitally for the first time.
