France defies critics with foreign investment paradox
- French Q2 FDI inflows third biggest after China, U.S.
- France top European destination for new foreign plants
- Government sending foreign investors mixed messages
I suppose the interesting thing is how the FDI is broken down as over 75% of the FDI is ‘Other Capital Investment’. I’m really curious what ‘Other’ represents. If a Vineyard in France is sold to a Chinese investor would that fall under ‘Other’? My guess is, yes. Take for example the local anger over a Burgundy vineyard, here or Richard Shen Dongiun in Bordeaux, here.
France is a fiscal paradise for some.
