Cocktail Pays de la Loire

Présentation et cocktail sponsorisés par L'Agence Régionale Pays de la Loire au Mercure Hotel Amsterdam City.

On Thursday, November 22nd, 2018 was held our Cocktail Pays de la Loire. The theme of the evening was

“The industry of the future: the ideal platform to conquer new markets”

As an introduction, Mathieu KahnHead of the Economic Department - French Embassy, and Olivier BouilléSenior Trade & Investment Business France, gave several reasons on why to invest in France.

Having a straight forward “pro-business agenda”, a strong industrial power and being the leading European country in aeronautics, France offers numerous assets for investors. And what could better illustrate it than Western France (Pays de la Loire)?

Mainly known for its castles, its wine and its famous race “24h du Mans’’, Western France still has a lot more to offer as Nathalie Garry, International Project Advisor – Agence Régionale Pays de la Loire exposed us.

The 3 main assets of this region which counts a ¼ of the Dutch population are:

  • It the 3rd French industrial region and has the highest factory creation since 2006. Many contractors and operating companies have chosen to settle there and it’s, already, home of 70 Dutch companies amongst which are Heineken, Denkavit and Koppert.
  • It is a land of innovation and opportunities. Indeed, the regional government chose to foster innovation by investing (by 2022) 253 million euros. The city of Laval is the capital of Virtual Reality with the Laval Virtual Event which welcomed, in 2018, a Dutch delegation of 6 companies!
  • Western France has an ideal localisation: European capitals can be easily reached and there are direct shipping roads to more than 400 ports.

We would like to thank the Mercure City Hotel for hosting us in their beautiful building where our guests could network while enjoying a delightful buffet, as well as the French Embassy in the Netherlands and Business France for their contribution to that evening.
Finally, we would like to give a special thanks to Nathalie Garry and to the Agence Régionale Pays de la Loire for having sponsored such a nice evening allowing the participants to discover this beautiful region.

We kindly invite you to have a look at our photo album below and we hope to see you at one of our next events!
