Despite the obstacles, French companies continue to sell overseas...

The export does not, it is the least that we can say, been a part of the fun for the last several months. Between the borders closed, production slowed down, or a request in free fall, the obstacles are multiplied for businesses that sell abroad. Yet, many of them are hung, indicates the last barometer of the Team France Export, published this morning (Thursday). Thus, 65% of the 6,000 companies surveyed between march 30 and may 29 in all the regions indicate continue to export, even "degraded mode". They were 55% in the previous month. This figure rises to 81% for the companies that carry out in normal times, more than a third of their business outside the borders of france (+13 points compared to the month of April). "This highlights the maintenance of a dynamic for the international", points out Business in France.

of Course, this has not been easy. The study shows that companies that have managed to continue their activity in the export encountered two main difficulties: the lack of visibility on the future of the markets, which go from 30% to 37% between April and may, and declines in sensitive orders cited by 25% of managers (versus 21% last month). The logistical problems encountered have a tendency to absorb (20% compared to 27% in April).

Lower orders

Each sector has its specific problems. For example, the "lack of visibility" is found mainly to the sectors, Industries, Tech & Services, shows the survey. "The drop in orders, is observed more particularly in the area Agrotech". Finally, what are the logistical problems that disrupt the activity of the sector the Art of Living, "which can be explained in particular by a re-opening very progressive points of sale abroad, the flow of inventory in priority, and the disruption of collections", still shows the note.

The French team of export, a single window composed of Regions, Business France, the chambers of commerce or even of Bpifrance, insists on the necessity of not falling behind competitors who are already on a war footing", according to the expression of the director-general of Business France, Christophe Lecourtier. Because if France, which already has difficulty to impose itself on the international markets, losing market share, it will be difficult to win them back. "We need to guide French companies and help them to think of the world of tomorrow and to adapt our products and services to new modes of distribution and the challenges of sustainable development," concludes Pedro Novo, executive director, Export Bpifrance.
