France as an economic area
After Germany, France's economy is the most successful and fastest growing in Europe. Tourism in particular plays an important role in the service sector, as the country and Paris in particular are considered the most visited places in the world. The landscape of France is characterized by plains and hills, with many mountains such as the Pyrenees and the Vosges. The beautiful country also includes several overseas islands and territories on different continents. The main trading partner with the highest number of imports and exports continues to be Germany, followed by Spain and the USA.
The transport infrastructure in France
With its dense freeway network, excellently developed public transport system and long coastline, France is not only a major economic power, but is also at the forefront of the logistics industry. Every year, the French transport and logistics industry generates sales of around 200 billion euros. The highway network supports the Paris metropolitan area in particular with the surrounding regions, with the majority of the routes being privately operated. About two thirds of all freeway routes are subject to tolls.
In general, the logistics sector is of high importance for France, not least due to its advantageous geographical location. The new construction of the "Ligne à grande vitesse" (LGV), which will connect France with southern Germany and with Saarbrücken and Mannheim, is particularly relevant for the German-French freight forwarding business. Thalys, on the other hand, connects Paris with Brussels, Aachen and Cologne.
