Change country :

Second biggest country of the European Union, France has 67 million inhabitants. The country joined the European Union in 1957 and the Eurozone in 1999. The French RFT sector is marked by a strong domestic activity, representing more than 90 % of its total activity. As a transit country, the French flag does not take sufficient advantage of its geographical position. International transport is gradually losing market share.
