Industry represents only 15 % of the employement the main industries are Car building (Renault and Peugeot) Aerospatial building (EADS, Dassault Aviation..) energy (Areva, EDF ...)
L'exception française. The French exception. The word came round in the middle of the 19th century. It started over a row between France and the U.S.A. The row consisted cultural differences mainly where U.S.A beleived that the cinema industry was an industry whereas France thought it was cultural (as in showed part of the cultural/traditional France) thus France sponsered the film industry. Which would be illegal were it an industry (which it isnt in France)…
