HSBC International Business Guides: France

France is Europe’s largest country and its location at the centre of the continent makes it a desirable destination for business. A skilled workforce and strong industrial base add to its attraction. Paris ranks second after Tokyo for hosting the greatest number of multinational company headquarters, with around 500 businesses making it their home city.

Paris features alongside London, Hong Kong and New York as one of HSBC’s trading hubs. With over 10,000 employees, HSBC France offers banking services to businesses and individuals, combining in-depth local knowledge with global expertise. That means we’re well positioned to help you take advantage of the many opportunities France can offer.

France sits at the crossroads of Europe, linking the North with the South. The country’s world-class infrastructure delivers strong connections both internally and externally, ranging from high speed rail links to busy ports and Europe’s leading business airport. Beyond pure transport, its political and cultural links with Europe, Africa and the Arab nations offer businesses opportunities for growth in Europe and further afield.

HSBC provides a comprehensive range of cross-border and financial services to suit both your personal and business needs, whether you are moving to the region, working in the area, or purely investing or doing business in France.
