For Finnish Companies with internationally competitive solutions for industrial digital transformation

Business Finland’s Sustainable Manufacturing program seeks actively business opportunities in various markets. Next, we will have a look at the industrial digitalization in France.

France is the seventh largest economy in the world and the second largest economy in the EU. France is among the leading global industrial economies in the automotive, aerospace and railway sectors, just to name a few sectors. Just last week, President Macron announced a 15 Bn€ post-coronavirus recovery financing for French industrial innovation, modernization, and relocation of French manufacturing industries. Furthermore, financing of AI projects in France is forecast to reach 1.1 Bn EUR in 2020, placing France in number one spot in EU.
