“Tomorrow the city of Paris will go all the way to Gonesse”: David Lebon spoke during the Greater Paris Summit

The second edition of the Greater Paris summit – Yearly event for a national asset – took place on Tuesday June 25, 2019.

On the occasion of the Greater Paris’ 10th anniversary, La Tribune wanted to revisit 10 unmissable projects. Economic actors, public decision-makers and elected officials came to present their solutions to bring the Greater Paris into the 21st century. Among them, EuropaCity’s Development Director David Lebon highlighted the project’s many benefits.

As explained by David Lebon during his speech, EuropaCity is “a tourist destination project in a territory without one”. This project aims to dynamize Paris’ North East where the average unemployment rate is 27%. The challenge is to structure this urban area by creating jobs in various industries such as retail, restaurant, leisure or even hospitality.

This project will also allow to move beyond Paris’ historical frontiers. As David Lebon reminded, “tomorrow the city of Paris will go all the way to Gonesse”. Located between the capital city and two airports, the Gonesse Triangle soon to be served by the Greater Paris Express’ line 17 will profit from a strategic location which will attract both tourists and locals alike.
