” The future of the overseas territories, the realization of our fellow citizens presupposes the creation of wealth. And this creation comes from companies. How to progress in this way? This is the purpose of our proposals FEDOM writes in a press kit summarizing and detailing these 30 proposals.
These are divided into four main themes: guaranteeing the conditions for economic development, promoting business competitiveness and innovation, improving attractiveness and strengthening territorial continuity, and consolidating traditional sectors by pursuing diversification.
These proposals also concern many issues such as relations between the state, local authorities and the economic world, the ” regulatory framework “which must adapt to” overseas reality “, or even the” support for entrepreneurship and inclusion in the economy, in particular for young people “. This is for the FEDOM a” before any technical or sectoral measure “.
The Federation also evokes the creation of a ” simplified and specific micro-entrepreneur status for overseas France “, The European funds for the protection of Biodiversity that FEDOM wants to direct more towards the overseas territories, or even the fight against the high cost of living. FEDOM also calls for the creation of an “Erasmus Overseas Tourism” and to “allow overseas ports to become regional hubs”.
