Attracting international talent and skill search
On November 6, 2019, the French government announced a new orientation to improve the French immigration, asylum and integration policy.
Implementing quotas or target figures to attract international talent that France needs is one of the major objectives among the 20 decisions taken to improve immigration policy in France. The aim of this policy is to identify skills that can not be found on the national labor market by the companies.
