France Economy

Back to Economic Data Main Page

France has a nominal GDP of $2.8 trillion, putting it at 5th in the world, and second largest in Europe. France is the world's second largest agricultural exporter. It is also the world's most popular tourist destination and as such, maintains the third largest income from tourism in the world. Lower-than-expected growth has cut government revenues and increased borrowing costs, causing France's budget deficit to increase from 3.4% to 5.8% of GDP between 2008 and 2011 and its public debt from 68% to 86% of GDP over the same period.
