A Little Taste of Normandy


French Culinary and Nutrition Week
November 26-29, 2012
Last autumn, the Seine-Maritime Chamber of skilled Crafts took part in the official visit to Cleveland OH by a French delegation from Rouen, Cleveland's Sister City.

During the visit there were many discussions about ways to promote business exchanges between France and Cleveland.

One area of particular interest was the rapidly growing health and restaurant industries in Northeast Ohio. Thus was born the Normandy Culinary and Health Event in Cleveland.

France is a member of the G8 group of leading industrialized nations and is ranked as the sixth largest economy by nominal GDP. France joined 11 other EU members to launch the euro on January 1, 1999, with euro coins and banknotes completely replacing the French franc in early 2002.

France

Although ultimately a victor in World Wars I and II, France suffered extensive losses in its empire, wealth, manpower, and rank as a dominant nation-state.

Nevertheless, France today is one of the most modern countries in the world and is a leader among European nations. Since 1958, it has constructed a hybrid presidential-parliamentary governing system resistant to the instabilities experienced in earlier more purely parliamentary administrations.

In recent years, its reconciliation and cooperation with Germany have proved central to the economic integration of Europe, including the introduction of a common exchange currency, the euro, in January 1999.

At present, France is at the forefront of efforts to develop the EU's military capabilities to supplement progress toward an EU foreign policy.
