Many countries have found it an economic and political necessity to have an overview of the SMEs.
For thirteen years now, Bpifrance’s SME Observatory has performed this task for France with the backing of many reference partners.
With SME 2016, the SME Observatory publishes for the first time an English summarized report of its annual report on French SMEs and intermediate-sized enterprises.
During 2015, the economic and financial situation of French SMEs and intermediate-sized enterprises clearly started to recover. The macroeconomic environment became more favorable but still uncertain and CEOs remained cautious, according to the lower level of investments and the smaller number of new start-ups. However, the desire to export was still high among micro-businesses and SMEs. Intermediate-sized enterprises were more the driven factor for French innovation. The 2016 outlook seems to indicate a better business climate for all companies.
