Trade Talks: France

30 maj 2024


As one of the world´s tenth largest economy, France offers vast opportunities for Swedish businesses, particularly in industries where Swedish innovation and quality are highly sought after, such as digitization, 5G technology, fiber connectivity, and energy solutions. Sweden’s trade relations with France have steadily expanded, and a number of Swedish companies and subsidiaries are already present in the French market.

France is an attractive market with a favorable investment climate, well-functioning infrastructure, and a highly skilled workforce with large investments in the tech sector. France can also serve as a gateway to parts of the French-speaking Caribbean and Africa.

French organizations often have a strict hierarchy, and the business culture and communication are usually more formal than in Sweden. The French also enjoy lively discussions and negotiating. It is important to build good relationships with French business partners, but also be aware of the cultural differences.

During this webinar, leading experts will explore business opportunities and talk about how to navigate the French market, provide insight, company cases and best practices to Swedish companies seeking to expand into France.
