Agreements signed between France and Luxembourg

On 20 March 2018, at a summit meeting, France and Luxembourg signed four bilateral agreements, including one to strengthen cooperation with respect to cross-border transport. These are "a set of agreements that have a concrete impact on the daily lives of our citizens. Our objective is joint and equal financing of a number of transport infrastructures," explained the French Prime Minister, Édouard Philippe.

Currently, some 95,000 cross-border workers from Lorraine cross the border every day to go and work in the Grand Duchy, which has a significant impact on rail and road transport. Paris and Luxembourg have also concluded a tax agreement (in order to avoid double taxation and to prevent tax evasion and fraud), an additional protocol on scientific and academic cooperation, and an administrative cooperation agreement concerning posted workers and the prevention of undeclared work.
