New name for a new breath. The employers' organization has been called Medef, the Mouvement des entreprises de France, for 20 years. In 2018, during his campaign for the post of president of the organization, Geoffroy Roux de Bezieux announced the wish to break away from this name, to break with the past. According to information from JDD
, this should soon be the case.
The paper estimates that a decision could be made on 18 November in a vote of the executive council or in December. A vote in general assembly would be scheduled on January 14.
EDF or LEDF?
Geoffroy Roux de Bezieux announced during his victory that the new name must "make the company understand its role of creator of wealth and jobs". For that, he wanted to see the words "companies" or "entrepreneurs" and "France".
Among the three agencies working on the project, another proposed Companies of France, EDF. There are of course other proposals such as Les Entreprises de France (LEDF), France companies or companies in motion.
