"Making France a winner"
The MEDEF's only objective is to make France a winner and its only obsession is employment. That is why the MEDEF and the enterprises of France are proposing, loudly and clearly, a real ambition for our country. An ambition which gives meaning to the efforts and reforms needed in the next few years.The ambition to create 1 million jobs in 5 years.
Our country has considerable strengths: sectors of excellence in industry, services, distribution and construction... ; fantastic engineers; large companies that are tremendous vehicles for our economy; dynamic and creative SMEs and mid-caps; a bureaucracy that works even if it must be streamlined; high-quality infrastructure; a culture, history and image which are a dream combination...
So that our ambition becomes reality, we must, without delay, launch four key reforms:
- Restore the conditions for the competitiveness of our economy.
- Implement a real movement to reduce public spending.
- Finally reconcile business, the economy and French society.
- Set a course and define a road map
The challenges are many but they are also opportunities for growth and jobs. Our ambition must also result in our winning new markets worldwide.
Together, we want to get France moving again. We are ambitious, confident and determined and have a will to win. It is urgent that France, bursting with potential, should make this ambition become a reality!
Pierre Gattaz, President of the MEDEF
