About this event 
 
 
France is an important economic partner for Scotland. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, France was the second largest international market for Scottish companies with an export value of ca. around £3 billion recorded in 2018 across a huge variety of business sectors: food and drink, engineering, life sciences, technical services and financial services. 
 
Despite the EU-exit and the Covid-19 pandemic, France remains an attractive market for Scottish companies.
