Culture shock. On a trip to New York this Thursday and Friday, the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire was to participate Thursday evening in the “Daily Show”, a comedy television show hosted by Trevor Noah and one of the most “late night shows”. followed in the United States, especially by young people. This will be an opportunity to “defend what has been done for five years with Emmanuel Macron in France”, explains Bruno Le Maire, who also wants to occasionally show a “modern and open face of France”.
Most of the agenda for the ministerial visit, however, is more classic, and will be devoted above all to the search for American investments in France. “The objective of my visit is twofold. First, to promote French attractiveness and to continue the work initiated five years ago by the Paris financial center to encourage bank relocations and attract new financial players, ”explains the Minister. He must notably meet Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan, who has just relocated staff from London to France.
