Face aux délocalisations, quelle politique économique en France ?


  • Catherine Mathieu
  • Henri Sterdyniak


International relocation has become a topical issue in recent months, in France as in Europe. The debate is not new, but while it was focusing 12 years ago on traditional industries and trade with emerging Asia, it includes now higher value-added goods and trade with CEEC?s. The article deals first with the impact of international relocation on employment in Europe and the need for policy answers. A variety of strategies are then addressed: making France more attractive in a free market world, making France more competitive in line with the Lisbon Agenda, supporting growth through higher education, research and innovation spending; promoting innovating companies; implementing employment measures in favour of the lower skilled. Last, in a European context, should tax and social harmonisations be favoured? Should a French or a European strategy be implemented?
