Number of other French companies announced their plans to get involved in industry, construction and energy projects.

      "French investors have invested in St. Petersburg’s economy a total of 1 billion 700 million U.S. dollars. This is a very good performance. But what is most important: we have good prospects for further development," Georgy Poltavchenko said.
