Around the time that The Group was busy setting up its first offices, Monsieur Macron would have been quite young indeed. And yet this gentleman was as level-headed as they come, perhaps showing a sense of maturity well beyond his age. For most Francophiles who are as serious-minded about business, investment and growth as he still is, they will remember his claim to fame as an astute business role model, making waves just like any number of today’s great entrepreneurs still are.
Who knows, at some stage or another during his own business development, Monsieur Emmanuel Macron may already have met one Bernard Bensaid. Today, many of you reading this note may not know Monsieur Bensaid as well as Macron has gotten to know him. If you keep up with your business times, focusing your investment radar on France for a while, you may soon hear more about him, his associates and The Group which they all had a hand in founding.
Because in terms of Monsieur Macron’s own long-term attitude towards his country’s future growth, The Group is certain to be invited to meetings at the French Presidential Palace. These meetings will always be crucial, where a business-minded and progressive president will want to keep up to date with new business and investment opportunities that are going to bring more growth and opportunities to the people of France.
At the time of this note’s publication, Monsieur Macron is President of the Republic of France. His historic election may have also come at a good time, not just for France, The Group and many other French businesses and investment houses, but for the entire European continent. Because go back a while and you will recall the United Kingdom’s citizenry’s shock decision to go Brexit. In other words, exit the European Union and pridefully go it alone.
Economic research has shown that global economic co-operation has never been more important today. There is also some debate that suggests the UK will be taking a lot of revenue and investment away from Europe. But when you have progressive, pragmatic and forward thinking leaders like Macron, Bensaid and one Chancellor Merkel at the helm, nothing could be further from the truth. Whether others seek to burn them, these fine people continue to build bridges.
Macron’s election as French president becomes a matter of history because of his non-establishment standing. He is neither socialist nor conservative. He is a fresh breeze in comparison to always maintaining the status quo. The term of office for any French president is a lengthy seven years; so fortunately, he does have some leeway in terms of the objectives still to be reached. But many men and women across France are always going to remember him in the years to come as France’s youngest president since the dictatorial and mercurial Napoleon Bonaparte. It is still hard to believe that Monsieur Macron is not yet forty years of age.
