法國的經濟能力以及文化

因為英會課老師教我們介紹法國,像是地理位置、首都、氣候、人口數、美食、藝術...等,我是負責經濟和文化這部份的,以話是我找到的一些資料。

法國是發達的工業國家,國內生產總值位於美、日、德之後,居世界第四位。在許多方面擁有優勢,如交通運輸、通訊、農業、工業、旅遊以及傳統奢侈品(輕革皮件加工、成衣、香水、葡萄酒等)。

Yves- Saint-Laurent(高級時裝)

Louis Vuitton(皮革製品)

Peugeot (汽車)

AIRBUS (飛機)

請就這些資訊以及您對法國文化的了解,編出大約兩分鐘的英文講稿。內容用淺顯易懂的字就行了,就跟平常對話一樣,我們要照著PowerPoint做簡報用的。

請各位高手幫幫忙吧!

    With a GDP of $1.6 trillion, France is the fourth-largest Western industrialized economy. It has substantial agricultural resources, a large industrial base, and a highly skilled work force. A dynamic services sector accounts for an increasingly large share of economic activity (71% in 2002) and is responsible for nearly all job creation in recent years. GDP growth was 0.2% in 2003, after two years of steady decline from 4.2% in 2000.

    Government economic policy aims to promote investment and domestic growth in a stable fiscal and monetary environment. Creating jobs and reducing the high unemployment rate through recovery-supportive policy has been a top priority. The Government of France successfully reduced an unemployment rate of 12% to 8.7%, in the late 1990s, but has seen unemployment increase to 9.5% in 2003 . France joined 10 other European Union countries in adopting the euro as its currency in January 1999. Since then, monetary policy has beeen set by the European Central Bank in Frankfurt. On January 1, 2002, France, along with the other countries of the Euro zone, dropped its national currency in favor of Euro bills and coins.

    France has been very successful in developing dynamic telecommunications, aerospace, and weapons sectors. With virtually no domestic oil production, France has relied heavily on the development of nuclear power, which now accounts for about 80% of the country's electricity production. Nuclear waste is stored on site at reprocessing facilities.
