Significant support for businesses
With the Export component of #FranceRelance, the government mobilized emergency measures in the autumn of 2020 to relaunch exports in the context of the resumption of activity. They aim to strengthen the strike force of French companies internationally, in particular through financial support to SMEs and ETIs in their export prospecting activities, support for the VIE system and better information on financial markets.
Responding to great challenges
The “France 2030” system supports the ecological transition by developing competitiveness and future technologies. To do this, a 30 billion euro investment plan was put in place to bring out the technological champions of tomorrow and support the transitions of our sectors of excellence: energy, automotive, aeronautics, health, agri-food, space.
Objectives: to find the path of environmental, industrial, technological, health and cultural independence, and to take a step forward in these strategic sectors with the keywords “understand better”, “live better” and “produce better”.
