What will be the situation in France in 2025?

September 30, 2013

What will be the situation in France in 2025? This is the question that the government of Jean Mark Ayrault and President François Holland attempted to answer after the end of the summer holidays at the Elysee Palace.

The Economy Minister Pierre Moscovici said that it is possible to put a definitive solution to the problem of unemployment in 2025 and that France is fully sovereign financially on condition of pension reform and rebalance of the general budget and other reforms in the labor market and the renewal of relations between employers and labor unions.

For his part, Arnaud Montebourg, Minister of Productive Recovery talked about a third industrial revolution in France where digital technologies play a key role and allow compensating for the regression in economic and investment. Montebourg believes that the support of the "industrial revolution" with digital technologies will make France one of the most attractive countries for students, researchers and global investor countries and competing with large  internet companies such as "Google "and" Yahoo.”

The Minister of the Interior, Manuel Valls bets on technology as a way to enhance and improve the services of the security forces to respond more quickly to the needs of French citizens. Valls stressed that the major challenge is the use of technology in security to make police more close to citizens and find solutions to their security problems.

The Minister of Justice Christiane Taubira had the same vision for the reform of the French judicial system to make it more transparent and close to citizens. Taubira relayed on the same digital technology and the Internet to streamline court procedures and save time and improve the services of the Ministry of Justice, in addition to reducing the price of services of notaries and accountants.

The Minister of Housing, Cécile Duflot expects that 6 million apartments will be delivered in 2025 and will not be difficult or compulsory; however, it will be a good and comfortable step for French. She promised to eliminate old unequipped habitats, in addition to reducing rents.
