30/03/2015 - The OECD Economic Survey of France, to be published on Thursday 2 April, assesses the factors behind France’s performance since the crisis as well as those holding back stronger economic recovery. The Survey discusses a range of structural reforms that can help the country renew growth, boost employment, raise living standards and improve well-being.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will present the Survey on 2 April in Paris with France’s Finance Minister Michel Sapin during a press conference starting at 16:30 local time (14:30 GMT) at the OECD Conference Centre (2 rue Andre Pascal, 75016 Paris).
OECD economists Peter Jarrett, Nicola Brandt and Antoine Goujard will hold a detailed media briefing on the Survey prior to the press conference, beginning at 15:30 CET. The briefing is under embargo until 16:30 CET.
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 16:30 CET for immediate release.
An Overview of the Economic Survey, with the main conclusions, will be freely accessible on the OECD’s web site at: http://oecd.org/france/economic-survey-france.htm. You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
An embeddable version of the Economic Survey will be available once the embargo is lifted.
Journalists will be allowed advance access to the electronic version of the OECD Economic Survey of France, by e-mail and under embargo, the day before release.
