France
This edition of CSCMP Global Perspectives takes a deeper look at France as an important global economy and leading transportation player in the European and global market. Located at the western edge of continental Europe, France is Western Europe’s largest country by surface area. It is the second largest economy in the European Union after Germany and the fifth largest in the world--thanks to a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of €1.996 billion in 2011 (almost $2.8 US billion). It is also one of most open economies as foreign trade accounts for more than 50% of GDP: exports of goods and services account for 25.5% of GDP and imports 27.7%. The bulk of industrial employment and value added in France are concentrated in a small number of sectors subject to a high level of international competition. The transportation sector accounts for around 5% of total value added in the economy as a whole, 5.5% of all jobs, and around 14% of household consumption.Note:This edition is available as an ePub file.  View a list of recommend ePub readers.
