Paris&Co joins, a global city network for international business

Paris will be presented to international investors around the world. On this platform, Paris finds itself in the company of like-minded cities such as Amsterdam, London and New York. The Paris market entry portal is managed by Paris&Co.

International business is an important part of the local economy of Paris. France saw a 
significant increase in the number of foreign direct investment projects over the last years. 

The main goals for Paris to join the platform are:

•    Attract more foreign direct investment 
•    Make local service providers visible to foreign companies
•    Create more local jobs

Leads for local service providers

Joining opens up the possibility for Parisian service providers to present their companies to foreign entrepreneurs, highlighting their expertise and enhancing their international network. 

Forglobal supports entrepreneurs and service providers to find one another across borders. The business platform hinges on the idea that companies that wish to open an office abroad, often do not know where to start and whom to trust. 

Helping small and midsize companies to access international business is an important way to address globalization's challenges.
