France is becoming increasingly popular, after having moved up five places to 11th worldwide in HSBC’s annual rankings on the best countries in which to work.

In last year’s rankings, France finished 23rd overall, but this year it was the third favorite destination for foreign expats in the European Union, after Germany and Sweden.
