The DG of the Treasury - a genuine International network

The DG of the Treasury is present in 106 countries and in 128 economic departments within the French Embassies and in French representations to European and international institutions. 

In synergy with the departments in France, the international network of the DG of the Treasury meets the needs of the State in terms of economic intelligence, international negotiation, analysis in macroeconomic and financial matters and public policies. It also supports companies with their international development.

They are committed to the internationalisation of French companies, contribute to making France more attractive and promote ongoing reforms and the government's economic policy. 

In concrete terms what do they do? 

·         Support French companies.
·         Provide economic and financial intelligence and analysis.
·         Make forecasts and advise the government.
·         Analyse the economic positions of different countries.
·         Prepare the economic aspect of the meetings and trips of the President of the Republic and members of the government.
·         Carry out comparative international studies, to inform public policy.

The regional economic departments:

·         Cover a multi-country geographical area.
·         Provide macro-economic intelligence for the whole area.
·         Operate based on poles of financial, economic and sector competencies

As you can see, the economic departments in the Embassy play a crucial role in co-ordinating bilateral economic relations, promoting France's positions and analysing public policies. 

If you have a passion for these subjects and you want to train abroad in a highly adaptable environment, the V.I.A is a fantastic way in!
