France is the largest country in the EU, stretching from the North Sea to the Mediterranean. France has an advanced industrial economy and an efficient farm sector. Main activities include automobile manufacture, aerospace, information technology, electronics, chemicals and pharmaceuticals and fashion. Following a mild slowing of activity in recent months, real GDP growth is projected to pick up slowly towards an annualized pace of 2% by 2012, led by business investment and exports. The unemployment rate has peaked but is set to decline only slightly, while price pressures will remain subdued, with underlying inflation at about 1% per year. The fiscal stance will need to be tight during 2011. Thereafter, further consolidation should aim to stabilize the debt-to-GDP ratio by 2013 (before it hits 95%) by curbing spending and broadening the tax base. With the pension reform now legislated, cutting spending in a sustainable way while raising long-term potential output could be achieved through reforms of health care and public administration. If needed, revenue increases should focus on rising environmental and property taxes. The fiscal policy framework should also be reinforced to boost credibility.
