Mr. Eric Fourel, President of EY France, and Mr. Mohamed Mabrouk, Partner at EY France, came to Riyadh, on 25 October 2023, to deliver a conference on “France at the forefront today. How about tomorrow?” to CAFS members and other French and Saudi companies, at the Federation of Saudi Chambers.
The Saudi French Business Council (CAFS) was represented by Dr. Mohamed Ben Laden, President, Eng. Faiz Al-Elweet, Vice-President, and Eng. Soufyan AlKabbani, Vice-President.
For over 20 years, the EY attractiveness barometer has been a reference point for understanding France’s position in the face of its competitors in foreign investment, its strengths, and areas for improvement. This EY barometer was notably mentioned by President Macron on the sidelines of the recent Versailles summit. It shows that, for the 4th consecutive year, France is at the top of the European ranking in terms of the number of foreign investment projects.
This conference brought together more than 40 French and Saudi professionals, eager to learn more about the positive environment and the incentive that France offers to foreign investors. The event was concluded by a networking luncheon among participants.
