-GDP growth was 1 percent in 2014 and is expected to decrease to -0.04 percent in 2015 because of weakening exports.
-Unemployment is expected to remain high throughout the forecast period and inflation will drop to 2.2 percent.

The Healthcare System:

The Markets:

-This places France in a segment of a relatively 'High Value' and 'Mature' market.
-Together with the budget cuts and the reforms, price sensitivity has become a dominant decision factor.
