In 2011, he published a “VADE MECUM INDIA”, (https://www.academia.edu/3572931/Vademecum_INDIA),. His work aims at bringing closer France and India, both economically and culturally. According to this target, His Excellency the Ambassador of India in France visited the Midi-Pyrénées area last year to discover its economy and the fact this “Région” is not only devoted to aircraft industry (http://www.objectifnews.com/node/7480).

  1. 1. Lettres indiennes INDIANDESK™‘s  newsletter  –    N°  1  –  1st  Quarter  2014  –  FREE  –  English  version     WHY  INVEST  IN  FRANCE  ?   Despite being often presented in the Anglo-Saxon press as a country in decline, France is among the most integrated and most invested industrialized countries in globalization. INDIANDESK™  :  A  NEW  PARTNERSHIP   This is a new service offered by cLé réseau d’avocats, due to M. C. Lèguevaques, lawyer at Paris and Ph. D (https://www.academia.edu/3574977/CV_Christophe_Leguevaques_2013_). A nation of tradition and technological innovation, France remains a major agricultural country with an impressive industrial knowhow and innovative spirit which has enabled it to solidify its place at the forefront of the race between globalized economies. In 2011, he published a “VADE MECUM INDIA”, (https://www.academia.edu/3572931/Vademecum_INDIA),. His work aims at bringing closer France and India, both economically and culturally. According to this target, His Excellency the Ambassador of India in France visited the Midi-Pyrénées area last year to discover its economy and the fact this “Région” is not only devoted to aircraft industry (http://www.objectifnews.com/node/7480). Indeed, Midi-Pyrénées is a leader in agriculture, water treatment and the pharmaceutical sector too. As a rich country and enterprising country, France, like India, has an inclusive economy. This is why in France, as in India, family firms have a vital role in economic development. M. C. Lèguevaques has given the management of the Desk to an English-speaking junior lawyer, Olivier Hirtzlin-Pinçon. The Desk is dedicated to help the French firms in their settlement and/or development in India and vice-versa for the Indian firms interested in doing business in France. In addition, in our two nations the role of the state is strategic in limiting excessive specialization and maintaining a wide range of industrial sectors. In that purpose, INDIANDESK™ will use the skills and competences of the different partners of the cLé réseau d’avocats. In the words of the French president in his interview with The Times of India (February 13, 2013) : “Indians will find in France the best technology, a high level of infrastructure, a workforce of exceptional quality and, what’s more, in the heart of the largest economy in the world : that of Europe.” Last, beyond the strictly economic and financial aspects, France remains a country where life is good. So come discover France. You will not be disappointed! FRANCE  –  INDIA  :  A  LOVE  AFFAIR  ?   France is now home to nearly 100 Indian companies.   NDIAN  COMPANIES  IN  FRANCE  -­‐  There are nearly 100 Indian companies doing business in France, employing over 5,600 people.

Indian companies prioritized site creations in 2011, which accounted for over 83% of projects.   FRANCE  AS  A  RECIPIENT  OF  INDIAN  INVESTMENT  IN  EUROPE  -­‐  In 2011, France was the third largest recipient of job-creating investment from India, receiving 11% of Indian projects in Europe.

As of 2013, innovation expenses incurred by SMEs are also eligible for the research tax credit (up to €80,000 of tax credit a year). ● France’s research tax credit is also a powerful incentive for research partnerships, as all expenditure contracted out to public-sector bodies is double-counted, thereby effectively doubling the research tax credit. Salaries paid to junior final-year doctoral and postdoctoral research personnel on their first permanent contract are quadruple-counted when calculating the research tax credit for two years. ● The research tax credit and “innovative new company” (JEI) schemes have been fixed for five years to provide businesses with visibility and legal security. ● France’s public investment bank, bpifrance, offers two solutions to promote the use of the research tax credit by micro-enterprises and SMEs, by guaranteeing and pre-financing the research tax credit. ● More than 15,000 businesses have received the research tax credit, declaring €18.39 billion of research expenditure in 2011. Total tax relief for research tax credit recipients amounts to €5.17 billion. ● France is ranked first in Europe for corporate tax rates on R&D operations, taking into account tax bases, depreciation allowances, tax exemptions and tax credits. (Source: KPMG, Competitive Alternatives, 2012) ● France was ranked sixth in the world in 2013 for the average cost of employing a researcher once tax incentives are taken into account, with lower costs than in the United States, Japan and and Germany.
