This weekend, at Porte de Versailles, in Paris, the second « Made in France » trade fair is taking place. The Minister, Arnaud Montbourg who promoted «Made in France» products with the typical ArmorLux striped sweater and the Moulinex robot, on the front page of Le Parisien last year, will be present for the opening. Between twenty five and thirty thousand visitors are expected for this occasion. Two hundred business firms will exhibit fooding, wine, clothes like « Mon Petit Polo Français » and French cars like the Citroën DS3. All the French know-how will be highlighted here, as this is the occasion to favor French exports. 24% of foreign countries judge French products as synonymous of precise work and rigour. French people declare they are ready to pay a higher price to buy French-made products which they judge reassuring.
The entrance cost is ten euros and more information is available on the website http://www.mifexpo.fr.
