Why Paris?

When most people think of Paris, they think of iconic sights like the Eiffel Tower, Champs Élysées, and Arc de Triomphe. These sites are emblems of France’s history, but today Paris is one of the most important business, financial, and political centers in the world. It has one of the highest GDPs of any city and is home to Fortune Global 500 companies that specialize in insurance, banking, and energy. As an important member of the European Union, Paris is also home to international agencies, such as the European Institute for Security Studies, the OECD, and UNESCO.
