Plans to kick-start French economy mooted
Louis Gallois, the esteemed French industrialist and former head of global aerospace company EADS, has delivered a government-commissioned report on French competitiveness. One of President François Hollande's main election promises was to get the economy out of the doldrums and create jobs. The report's aim is to inform policy makers just how to go about doing that. Yet it's not known how many of Gallois' proposals will be adopted by the government - indeed, how many they can afford.
