Paris Region Key Economic Indicators - 3rd quarter 2009

The deterioration in the employment rate has been more significant in the Paris region in recent months than in the rest of the country. Whilst for France as a whole, the unemployment rate remained exactly the same as in the previous quarter, in the Paris region it again increased by 0.2 point between the 2nd and 3rd quarters (to an average of 7.9% for the whole quarter). Although the increase was lower compared with the first two quarters of 2009 (+0.5 point and +0.4 point), this should not hide the fact that businesses are still facing ongoing problems and are waiting for signs of a long-term and above all a more sustained recovery across all sectors. This is clearly illustrated by business demographics: the number of business start-ups continued to benefit from the French government's "auto-entrepreneur" stimulus plan for small businesses but start-ups not covered by this scheme decreased by 20% compared with the 3rd quarter of 2008; similarly, after falling for two quarters, business failures increased slightly (+1.7%).»
