The decline of the industry sector in France

This research project aims to answer the following questions: *Why is the French industry in a more severe decline than other EU countries? How does the EU amplify this decline? What characteristics can be identified in the most declining industries (technological level, activities, workforce, sector dynamism, export rate, debt level)? A detailed sectorial analysis will help us to understand what drives company executives to reduce staff numbers, offshore the production process or part of it, or even close down factories in France.
