DGE – Ministère de l'Économie et des Finances

Under the authority of the Minister for the Economy and Finance Affairs, the DGE is tasked with developing and implementing government policy for industry, the digital economy, tourism, commerce, craft industries and trades and services. The DGE’s 1,300 members of staff work nationally and regionally in our network of DIRECCTE to promote business start-ups, growth, innovation and competitiveness for companies of all sizes in France and abroad.
The DGE works in close partnership with businesses and business representatives including trade organisations and federations, chambers of commerce, industry and trade and support networks. Combined with the DGE’s knowledge, these partnerships make it possible to perform joint assessments before introducing the appropriate government policy.
