Establishment of regional conferences on public investment

A circular signed by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has been sent to the regional prefects requiring them to set up regional conferences on public investment before the end of May.

The conferences are intended to facilitate the implementation of investment projects in order to support activity in the construction sector. They are required to involve all the entities concerned by public investment in the territories (local authorities, government departments, funding bodies and businesses). They will also contribute to the establishment of multi-year infrastructure plans for future financial years in the regions and remove obstacles to the launching of investment projects. They will be able to obtain support from the conférence territoriale de l'action publique (regional public action conference), defined by article L.1111-9 of the CGCT (local authority general code), which will enable them to bring the border partners together and discuss cross-border investments.
