This plan aims to finance up to 54 billion euros over five years for the country’s major ecological and economic transitions. “At the end of September, 8.5 billion euros had been committed.

Double the number of technology start-ups

Elisabeth Borne must take stock of “France 2030” on Friday by bringing together the committee dedicated to Matignon.

The massive investment plan of the United States (Inflation Reduction Act, IRA), likely to distort competition, is an “important subject of concern” that France intends “to bring to European level”, she believes. And President Emmanuel Macron will raise this issue during his state visit to Washington at the end of November.

“Given the nature of the support and their very massive nature, this plan does not respect the rules of the WTO”, according to the Prime Minister. It could “cause (France) to lose 10 billion euros of investment in France and 10,000 potential job creations”. “Europe cannot be the only place where there is no “Buy European Act” (aiming to entrust markets to European companies, editor’s note), we want a political and industrial debate on a European scale and international,” she says.
