About the theme

UPDATE BANNER ECONOMIC UPDATE

The French presidential election 2017 will be held on April 23rd (first round) and May 7th (second round). With plenty of twists and turns so far, it is already proving to be one of the most unpredictable in history. After Brexit and Donald Trump, no scenario is to be put off the table, considering the current political mood in France, both volatile and distrustful. Let’s learn more about what is at stake for structural reforms, the EU policies and global economy with John Peet, Europe Editor, The Economist;  Laurent Bigorgne, Executive Director, Institut Montaigne; Florentin Collomp, UK Correspondent, Le Figaro in our next edition of the French Chamber of Commerce in Great-Britain Economic Update on April 25th.
