French PM wants to boost competitiveness

Friend-of-this-blog Denis Besnainou (European Commission) informs us that the French government has yesterday made a firm commitment in favour of competitiveness, "inseparable from the rebalancing of public finances". This may not be much news to non-French experts, but in France, this does look like unchartered territory, not to say adopting "anglo-saxon prejudices".
The full news item develops the connection between entrepreneurship, as supported by the French government, and competitiveness, with the claim that thanks to R&D, innnovation and various public incentive schemes, especially for SMEs, France's position is now second in Europe for FDI.
