Economy

France is classed as a very rich country, the GNP per capita was 22,380 US dollars in 1999.
The economic conjuncture is the most favourable that the country has known for the last ten years : the internal demand has grown, so have exports and orders : French industry is working at 87% of its production capacity.
The continuing low rate of inflation makes French products more competitive and contributes to the rise in the internal household purchasing power. The unemployment rate has fallen (but is still higher than the European average), which is also a help in keeping up internal consumption. 500,000 jobs were created in 2000, an all time record. Consumption went over 5,000 billion euros (55% of the

GDP), and the deductions for petrol (with the price hike), which caused the purchasing power to drop, will gradually dissipate.
Foreign investors are attracted by the high level of productivity, the central position of France in western Europe and by its efficient communication network.
All these good results make the management of the economy that bit easier for the government, the Minister of Finance aims at having a "zero deficit in the budget" in 2005, something which has not happened in France for the last twenty years.

Other sectors

Expats to Paris

67.1% of the labour force work in the service sector and contribute 71.5% of the GNP.
New technologies, information and communication are estimated as being 0.4% of the GDP. It is still a small part, in spite of the boom in the volume of the added value, which has been multiplied by four between 1980 and 1998. This sector employs 3% of the labour force. Access to internet has become nearly free in France with the widespread adoption of all-inclusive forfeits.
In terms of capital risk, the French internet companies made over 6.7 million dollars in 2000, not counting those which went onto the stock market.
Since then several start-ups have gone bankrupt or sold out.

Money is not short, but the investors are a lot more careful and the excesses of the last two years are acting as a sanction on today's market : a multitude of projects in the same sector of the market, companies which didn't find clients, risky or spendthrift management, incompetence ... all of that fed by a huge wave of capital, often attracted by the perspective of a quick profit on the stock market.
Companies which offer a highly technical product, which is difficult to copy and is really innovatory can still find financing. Several start-ups have been taken over by large groups.
12% of French households have access to Internet, compared to 7% a year ago.
The number of "host" computers went up by 26% in the first six months of 2003.
