For France, 2018 was meant to be the year of economic re-awakening following political renewal - growth is picking up and president Emmanuel Macron seems determined to deliver on his promises of reform. Will the recent wave of strikes blow over or are his reforms likely to be derailed? Are investors wary about the country's prospects or has positive sentiment definitely put the country back on the map for investors? Will investment volumes increase? What will investors be looking for? What impact will the reforms have on the property sector?

Paris has recently aggressively positioned itself as the alternative to London, luring big banks like Hsbc - to what extent will it benefit from Brexit? Office take-up in Paris has increased and vacancy rates have been going down. Is this positive trend likely to continue? Will the residential sector benefit from the urbanisation trend? What will the impact on real estate of big infrastructure projects like Grand Paris and the prospect of the Olympic Games in 2024? Will investors looking for more opportunities and better yields look beyond Paris? What are the prospects for France's regional cities like Lyon, Bordeaux, Marseille or Lille, which feature prominently in the global lists of the best places to live? France is also playing an increasingly important role in Europe's fast-growing logistics sector. What are the prospects? What about the hospitality sector, as France continues to be a major tourist attraction?
