Will Paris become the heart of Europe?
With the UK drifting away in the wake of the Brexit, Germany tangled by immigration issues and Spanish politicians squabbling over Catalonia; London, Berlin, Madrid and Barcelona seem to be losing their appeal in favour of Paris.
Indeed, Paris, the city of light, will host the 2024 Olympic games, a demonstration to the world of unity and fraternity while at the same time, strength and eagerness to compete.
Three months ago, Paris inaugurated Station F, the world's biggest startup campus.
But in my opinion, the real tipping point will come with Emmanuel Macron's new labour code that will inject flexibility into too rigid an employment market in France.
The positive impact of the reform on unemployment will soon appease critics and make France a land of opportunity again.
And Paris will be at its heart, as always!

PMI Strategy for acquiring a company
PMI Strategy, the acronym for Post Merger Integration Strategy, is one of the most difficult conundrum for buyers of companies.
The choice of the PMI Strategy is conditioned by two factors:
- The strategic interdependence factor and,
- The organizational autonomy factor
To choose the best PMI Strategy, Acquirers need first to score those two factors.
