Agrandir Christophe Giral croit dur comme fer que les entreprises québécoises ont leur place dans l'univers d'Euro Disney - dont le chiffre d'affaires s'élève à 1,7 milliard $ - et qu'elles pourraient profiter d'une «vitrine incroyable» pour développer de nouveaux marchés en sol européen.

(Le Soleil, Patrice Laroche) - image 1.0 Agrandir De l'avis de Christophe Giral, le Québec s'est bâti «un savoir-faire reconnu internationalement» dans les domaines du bâtiment vert intelligent et de l'image appliquée sous toutes ses formes. Le Soleil, Patrice Laroche Trêve de plaisanterie. Mickey Mouse n'était pas à Québec mercredi. Il avait plutôt délégué Christophe Giral, le directeur immobilier d'Euro Disney. Celui-ci était l'invité de la section Québec de la Chambre de commerce française au Canada, qui tient, ces jours-ci, sa semaine d'excellence en affaires Québec-France. En matinée, mercredi, M. Giral et la délégation du Val d'Europe - une ville située à une trentaine de kilomètres à l'est de Paris et qui est le royaume des deux parcs thématiques de Disneyland Paris, Disneyland et Walt Disney Studios - ont discuté avec des représentants économiques régionaux pour exprimer leurs besoins. En après-midi, ils ont rencontré huit entreprises québécoises pour explorer les possibilités d'établir des collaborations d'affaires. Parmi ces entreprises, il y avait des firmes d'architectes (Hudon et Julien Associés, Tergos), le fabricant de maisons préfabriquées Modulex et des sociétés évoluant dans les nouvelles technologies, comme Exact Modus, Frima Studio et Saga Film. Savoir-faire De l'avis de Christophe Giral, le Québec s'est bâti «un savoir-faire reconnu internationalement» dans les domaines du bâtiment vert intelligent et de l'image appliquée sous toutes ses formes. Il croit dur comme fer que les entreprises québécoises ont leur place dans l'univers d'Euro Disney - dont le chiffre d'affaires s'élève à 1,7 milliard $ - et qu'elles pourraient profiter d'une «vitrine incroyable» pour développer de nouveaux marchés en sol européen. Au cours d'une allocution, le dirigeant d'Euro Disney s'est attardé à expliquer que Disneyland Paris est bien plus que deux parcs thématiques qui attirent 15 millions de visiteurs par année, «soit plus que le musée du Louvre et la tour Eiffel réunis». Dans les faits, Euro Disney est au coeur d'un partenariat public-privé inusité. Avec le gouvernement fran*çais et les collectivités territoriales régionales, Euro Disney fait du développement urbain sur tout le territoire du Val d'Europe. Ce «triangle de décision» a littéralement transformé cette communauté. De 5000 habitants et quel*ques dizaines d'emplois agrico*les en 1989, la «nouvelle ville» qui carbure à partir des principes du développement durable et de la saine qualité de vie de ses citoyens compte aujourd'hui 28 000 habitants et plus de 20 000 emplois. D'ici 2030, Val d'Europe comptera 60 000 habitants. Pour chaque euro investi par les pouvoirs publics, le secteur privé a mis 10 euros sur la table. En tout et partout, pas moins de 9 milliards $ ont été investis jusqu'à ce jour. Partenariat Récemment, les pouvoirs publics français et Euro Disney ont con*venu de prolonger jusqu'en 2030 leur entente de partenariat. L'espace à développer passe de 1934 à 2230 hectares. Pas moins de 11 milliards $ pourraient y être investis au cours des 20 prochaines années. Depuis déjà quelque temps, Euro Disney songe à créer un troisième parc thématique qui mettrait en valeur le plein air, la santé et le bien-être. «Les Villages Nature de Val d'Europe vont devenir le plus grand champ d'interprétation du développement durable au monde», a indiqué M. Giral, qui compte sur l'expertise développée en ces matières au Québec pour collaborer à ce projet de 2,5 milliards $. ************** Un bon exemple qu'il y a espoir de percer le marché europpéen, un premier pas dans la direction du libre-échange Canada-Europe
  5. The banking system in eastern Europe is increasingly vulnerable to a severe economic downturn, Moody’s has warned, saying western European banks with local subsidiaries are at risk of ratings downgrades. “The relative vulnerabilties in east European banking systems will be exposed by an increasingly tougher operating environment in eastern Europe as a result of a steep and long economic downturn coupled with macroeconomic vulnerabilities,” Moody’s said in a report. The ratings agency said it expected “continuous downward pressure on east European bank ratings” because of deteriorating asset quality, falling local currencies, exposure to a regional slump in real-estate and the units’ reliance on scarce short-term funding. Eurozone banks have the largest exposure to central and eastern Europe, with liabilities of $1,500bn – about 90 per cent of total foreign bank exposure to the region. Shares of the handful of banks with substantial investments in eastern Europe – led by Austria’s Raiffeisen and Erste Bank, Société Générale of France, Italy’s UniCredit (which owns Bank Austria) and Belgian group KBC – tumbled after the ratings agency said it was concerned about the impact of a slowdown and the ability of the parent banks to support their support units in the region. The Austrian banking system is the most vulnerable, with eastern Europe accounting for nearly half of its foreign loans, while Italian banks are exposed to Poland and Croatia and Scandinavian institutions to the Baltic states. Central and eastern European currencies have come under intense pressure in recent weeks. The credit crisis has raised fears over the region’s ability to finance its current account deficits and slowing global growth has heightened concerns over the health of its export-dependent economies. The Polish zloty plunged to a five-year low against the euro on Tuesday, while the Czech koruna hit a three-year trough against the single currency and the Hungarian forint falling to a record low. The Prague and Warsaw stock indices meanwhile fell to their lowest levels in five years, while the smaller markets of Budapest, Zagreb and Bucharest skirted close to multi-year lows. The euro dropped to a two-month low against the dollar on Tuesday on heightened concerns over eurozone banks’ exposure to the worsening conditions in eastern Europe. Amid the growing sense of crisis in eastern European economies, Hungary on Tuesday outlined plans to save Ft210bn (€680m, $860m) this year to prevent an increase in the budget deficit. Hungary’s economy is expected to contract by up to 3 per cent this year, much more than earlier expectations. Antje Praefcke at Commerzbank said eastern European currencies were in a “self-feeding depreciation spiral.” “The creditworthiness of local banks, companies and private households, who hold mainly foreign currency denominated debt, is deteriorating with each depreciation in eastern European currencies, thus further undermining confidence in the currencies,” she said. Ms Praefcke said further depreciation of eastern European currencies was thus a distinct possibility, which was likely to undermine the euro. “The collapse of these currencies is likely to constitute a risk for the euro,” she said. “So far markets have largely ignored this fact, but are unlikely to be able to maintain this approach if the weakness of the eastern European currencies continues.” Western European banks have piled into the former Communist countries in recent years as economic growth in the region outpaced domestic gains. The accession of 10 new members to the European Union in 2004, and of Romania and Bulgaria in 2007, added to optimism about the region. In 2007, Raiffeisen and Erste Bank earned the vast majority of their pre-tax profits in eastern European countries including Russia and Ukraine. Since the onset of the global financial crisis, Hungary, Latvia and Ukraine have all received emergency loans from the International Monetary Fund, with other countries in the region expected to follow.

  17. VISIT the euro zone and you will be invigorated by gusts of reform. The “Save Italy” plan has done enough for Mario Monti, the prime minister, to declare, however prematurely, that the euro crisis is nearly over. In Spain Mariano Rajoy’s government has tackled the job market and is about to unveil a tight budget (see article). For all their troubles, Greeks know that the free-spending and tax-dodging are over. But one country has yet to face up to its changed circumstances. France is entering the final three weeks of its presidential campaign. The ranking of the first round, on April 22nd, remains highly uncertain, but the polls back François Hollande, the Socialist challenger, to win a second-round victory. Indeed, in elections since the euro crisis broke, almost all governments in the euro zone have been tossed out by voters. But Nicolas Sarkozy, the Gaullist president, has been clawing back ground. The recent terrorist atrocity in Toulouse has put new emphasis on security and Islamism, issues that tend to favour the right—or, in the shape of Marine Le Pen, the far right. Yet what is most striking about the French election is how little anybody is saying about the country’s dire economic straits (see article). The candidates dish out at least as many promises to spend more as to spend less. Nobody has a serious agenda for reducing France’s eye-watering taxes. Mr Sarkozy, who in 2007 promised reform with talk of a rupture, now offers voters protectionism, attacks on French tax exiles, threats to quit Europe’s passport-free Schengen zone and (at least before Toulouse) talk of the evils of immigration and halal meat. Mr Hollande promises to expand the state, creating 60,000 teaching posts, partially roll back Mr Sarkozy’s rise in the pension age from 60 to 62, and squeeze the rich (whom he once cheerfully said he did not like), with a 75% top income-tax rate. A plethora of problems France’s defenders point out that the country is hardly one of the euro zone’s Mediterranean basket cases. Unlike those economies, it should avoid recession this year. Although one ratings agency has stripped France of its AAA status, its borrowing costs remain far below Italy’s and Spain’s (though the spread above Germany’s has risen). France has enviable economic strengths: an educated and productive workforce, more big firms in the global Fortune 500 than any other European country, and strength in services and high-end manufacturing. However, the fundamentals are much grimmer. France has not balanced its books since 1974. Public debt stands at 90% of GDP and rising. Public spending, at 56% of GDP, gobbles up a bigger chunk of output than in any other euro-zone country—more even than in Sweden. The banks are undercapitalised. Unemployment is higher than at any time since the late 1990s and has not fallen below 7% in nearly 30 years, creating chronic joblessness in the crime-ridden banlieues that ring France’s big cities. Exports are stagnating while they roar ahead in Germany. France now has the euro zone’s largest current-account deficit in nominal terms. Perhaps France could live on credit before the financial crisis, when borrowing was easy. Not any more. Indeed, a sluggish and unreformed France might even find itself at the centre of the next euro crisis. Browse our slideshow guide to the leading candidates for the French presidency It is not unusual for politicians to avoid some ugly truths during elections; but it is unusual, in recent times in Europe, to ignore them as completely as French politicians are doing. In Britain, Ireland, Portugal and Spain voters have plumped for parties that promised painful realism. Part of the problem is that French voters are notorious for their belief in the state’s benevolence and the market’s heartless cruelty. Almost uniquely among developed countries, French voters tend to see globalisation as a blind threat rather than a source of prosperity. With the far left and the far right preaching protectionism, any candidate will feel he must shore up his base. Many business leaders cling to the hope that a certain worldly realism will emerge. The debate will tack back to the centre when Mr Sarkozy and Mr Hollande square off in the second round; and once elected, the new president will ditch his extravagant promises and pursue a sensible agenda of reform, like other European governments. But is that really possible? It would be hard for Mr Sarkozy suddenly to propose deep public-spending cuts, given all the things he has said. It would be harder still for Mr Hollande to drop his 75% tax rate. 1981 and all that Besides, there is a more worrying possibility than insincerity. The candidates may actually mean what they say. And with Mr Hollande, who after all is still the most likely victor, that could have dramatic consequences. The last time an untried Socialist candidate became president was in 1981. As a protégé of François Mitterrand, Mr Hollande will remember how things turned out for his mentor. Having nationalised swathes of industry and subjected the country to two devaluations and months of punishment by the markets, Mitterrand was forced into reverse. Mr Hollande’s defenders say he is a pragmatist with a more moderate programme than Mitterrand’s. His pension-age rollback applies only to a small set of workers; his 75% tax rate affects a tiny minority. Yet such policies indicate hostility to entrepreneurship and wealth creation and reflect the French Socialist Party’s failure to recognise that the world has changed since 1981, when capital controls were in place, the European single market was incomplete, young workers were less mobile and there was no single currency. Nor were France’s European rivals pursuing big reforms with today’s vigour. If Mr Hollande wins in May (and his party wins again at legislative elections in June), he may find he has weeks, not years, before investors start to flee France’s bond market. The numbers of well-off and young French people who hop across to Britain (and its 45% top income tax) could quickly increase. Even if Mr Sarkozy is re-elected, the risks will not disappear. He may not propose anything as daft as a 75% tax, but neither is he offering the radical reforms or the structural downsizing of spending that France needs. France’s picnickers are about to be swamped by harsh reality, no matter who is president. http://www.economist.com/node/21551478

  20. Tiens tiens..ça ne vous rappelle rien? Scotland warned it could lose the pound and be forced to join Euro as price of independence. A spokesman for David Cameron said there were no guarantees that the Scots could keep sterling if they voted against remaining affiliated with the rest of the union. Mr Cameron’s spokesman said: “Once you start asking the question about independence, one part of that is what currency to have. Would Scotland retain the pound, and if so, how does that work? Or does it join the euro? That’s one part of the independence question.” Other issues which Downing Street said would need ironing out are shared defence capabilities, the national debt and border security. A carve up of assets between England and Scotland could leave both countries facing years of legal wrangling. Today Mr Cameron told MPs that he passionately believed in the United Kingdom and accused Scottish nationalists of attempting to delay a referendum on separation indefinitely. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/scotland/scottish-politics/9007878/Scotland-warned-it-could-lose-the-pound-and-be-forced-to-join-Euro-as-price-of-independence.html
