    October 22 2008, 11:30 - 11:30
    Location: AmCham France, 156 boulevard Haussmann 75008 Paris

    On October 22, Bain and AmCham presented the annual Barometer via press conference at AmCham France. The Bain-AmCham Barometer "Le Moral des investisseurs americains en France" has been a reference work on the investment climate in France since 1995.  In past years, US companies have highlighted their concerns about rigid labor laws and high taxes, while praising France's infrastructure, education, and stability.  This is one of the most eagerly awaited business polls each year. 

    AmCham President Jean-Claude Gruffat (Citibank), Treasurer Bertrand Pointeau (Bain), and Raphael Kahane of France 24 (as moderator) explained this year's results.
    There were several articles written on the Barometer, now available below. Also availble is the actual presentation.
