France is "open for business": Hollande's charm offensive with foreign investors
Issued on: Modified:
Please come to France, we shall not tax you more, we shall make your life easy! This is the message delivered by François Hollande to CEOs of foreign companies who were wined and dined for 24 hours in Paris this week. A socialist president singing the praise of the corporate world? Not to the liking of his socialist supporters: Hollande's popularity hits rock bottom and the outcome of the municipal elections next month looks gloomy.
