The State will keep the last word on the control of Aéroports de Paris

The Minister of Economy and Finance claims that even if foreign capital invests in Aéroports de Paris (ADP), he will not allow foreign control. “The Mayor also stated that he had ‘learned the lessons’ of the privatization of highways in 2006, in which he played a key role as the director of the office of the Prime minister at the time, Dominique de Villepin. The State has a mechanism in place to keep control of the royalties that Airports of Paris, will be paid, he explained.” But on October 4, the National Assembly passed a bill that will allow the state to see “all or part of its shares of the group ex-Aéroports de Paris, which represent nearly 9.5 billion euros.”
