Previously, Franz Fayot was elected to Parliament in 2013 and in 2018, as candidate for the LSAP. In Parliament, he assumed the role of rapporteur for the draft budget for 2015 and focused on public finances, cultural policy, as well as on social justice and poverty issues.
From 1997 until his appointment to the government, Franz Fayot worked as a barrister in Luxembourg.
Franz Fayot graduated a DEA (post-graduate diploma of advanced studies) in corporate law from the Université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne in 1996.
An in-depth discussion on the future of Lux-Asia relations and the digital & sustainable transformation of international business between Mr. Franz Fayot, Minister of the Economy of Luxembourg, and Chamber members in Asia:
Join Luxembourg's Minister of the Economy, Mr. Franz Fayot, for an insightful discussion about the economic impacts of the pandemic and how this unprecedented global crisis is transforming our way of doing business in Asia & the world. During the discussion, we will explore business opportunities between Luxembourg & ASEAN countries, with a specific focus on the digital transformation and sustainable business models that have become an important topic in ASEAN & wider Asia, while highlighting Luxembourg's innovation & data-driven landscape as its unique comparative advantage.
This talk, organised by the collective of BLCCs in Asia with the support of the Luxembourg Embassy in Bangkok, will be moderated by Mr. Arnoud de Meyer, a global academic leader with more than 35 years of experience in academic institutions in Europe and Asia.
Please note that in order to focus within such a large Pan-Asian region and within such a large group of cooperating Chambers, the choice was made for ASEAN. Nonetheless, many topics concerning ASEAN concern the rest of Asia as well - and we certainly believe that our BLCC Community in HK can benefit from the talk.
Join this insightful talk to hear more about the relationship between Luxembourg & Asia. This is THE opportunity to ask all your questions, on any relevant topic.
Your questions for Mr. Franz Fayot are warmly invited & appreciated, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line LUXEMBOURG & ASEAN: Partners in a Digital Changing World before Monday 3 May, 10 am.
