Economic development and regional disparities in France

Serge Dormard

A chapter in Employment and regional development policy: Market efficiency versus policy intervention, 2004, pp 50-67 from ARL – Akademie für Raumentwicklung in der Leibniz-Gemeinschaft

Abstract: To begin with, we present some features of the regional development in France, insisting on the concentration and specialization phenomena shown by the regional economies. We will see that the territory of France, despite important transformations especially in favour of the South of the country, is still suffering from profound imbalances, particularly between the region of Paris and the province. Then we analyze the issue of disparities of the levels of development and their convergence over the last decades. These disparities are still very strong and do not seem to decrease but very slowly.
