“Listen to our global winners. They can give us advice.”

Philippe Guérand met Pierre Gattaz not so long ago and the two men immediately hit it off. “Because I met a business leader who takes financial risks and who knows what that means,” he explains. As a Special Advisor, Philippe Guérand continues to deliver his straightforward remarks. His goal is to get all companies working together and creating connections. SMEs and mid-sized companies of course, but also major conglomerates. “We need to listen to these global winners, they can give us advice.”

Creating stronger ties between large and small companies

This is even more important because most people work for SMEs and mid-sized companies.” He wants these organisations to dialogue, exchange ideas, provide each other feedback. In practical terms, this could mean creating stronger ties between large groups and the smallest companies looking to export. “Some large groups are bringing their subcontractors abroad to introduce them to new markets. That is the direction we need to go,” points out Philippe Guérand.

Medef position on Brexit

The French and British economies are intricately linked. Our primary trade surplus is with the

United Kingdom. Around 400 000 French people work in the UK. Every sector, each individual

company, has specific and unique interests regarding Brexit. Everything possible must be done in

the forthcoming negotiation to avoid lessening the quality and the strength of this relationship.

French companies must continue to be able to trade with the UK without supplementary costs or

restrictions. A level playing field must be ensured so that French companies can continue to invest

and create jobs.
