Yesterday Fleur Pellerin and Aurélie Filippetti officially set up a working group to support the creation of “made in France” video games.

The entity will bring together members of the National Video Game Union (SNJV) and the Leisure Software Publishers Union (SELL).

The missions of this device are multiple, explains an article from Le Monde. The creation of this group aims, in fact, to support innovation and French competitiveness in the sector. Emphasis must also be placed on training as well as on France’s attractiveness for foreign players.

In fact, a first section on taxation should be studied this summer. The analysis of other devices will then take place during the autumn, said the Minister of the Digital Economy.

In 2012, the video game industry in France weighed € 2.7 billion, against € 52 billion worldwide, recalls the daily.
