, DC 20062
On Thursday, October 12, the Chamber's European Affairs Program hosted Bruno Le Maire, France’s Minister of the Economy and Finance.
The discussion centered on the U.S.-France partnership, France’s economic reform agenda, and France’s views on the future of the European Union. Much of the conversation centered on how France plans to boost competitiveness, and on France’s controversial plans to implement new taxes on the digital economy. The Chamber called for international cooperation on tax issues, and for the French government to carefully consider any potential unintended consequences of its policies.
