This open letter, published in Le Figaro, Les Echos and Le Parisien, calls on the President of the Republic, members of the Government, elected officials and social partners, in order to accelerate the process of modernizing our production apparatus while adapting our work force to this industrial revolution.
“The Government is preparing a recovery plan for the start of the September academic year so that our economy can return to its pre-crisis level by 2021. The priority of the priorities of this plan must be the massive investment of the public authorities in the technologies and industry of the future (industrial internet, AI, 5G, robotization…). These major tech works come under public order, both national and regional, with the aim of accelerating the digitization of the State and local communities. The digital transformation of companies, in particular in industry, will have to be the subject of a massive effort to support productive investment, through the creation of a support fund, but also over depreciation, research tax credit and existing systems. This plan will make it possible to better digitize our health, our public services, our administrations, our schools, our businesses while providing tech solutions to agricultural and environmental challenges.
