Explanation:
Here's an extract to help you:
"Le contexte hexagonal n'a plus la même signification décisionnelle dans notre branche" prévient d'entrée Georges Rumeau. Comprenez les décisions d'investissement et d'implantation se décident au niveau international et "force est de constater que la compétitivité des sites français n'est pas favorisée par rapport à la zone ARA (Anvers Rotterdam Amsterdam) en raison du niveau de la fiscalité et de la lourdeur de la législation sociale en France." L'année en cours ne verra donc pas de gros investissement sur le pourtour de l'étang de Berre, hormis les 300 MF prévus par Basell."
