Distribution of gross domestic product (GDP) across economic sectors in France 2018

In 2018, services contributed the most to France's gross domestic product (GDP), with a share of just over 70 percent. Having an economy based on the services sector is a widely recognized marker of an advanced economy.

What are the attractions in the services sector?

France's economy was about 2.7 trillion U.S. dollars, and its GDP is projected to increase through 2024. The country's services sector relies heavily on the retail and fashion industry, as well as a robust tourist industry: France is the number one tourist location worldwide, with many different types of destinations, including museums, pieces of architecture, beaches, and seaside resorts.

France's future

France's economic strength is quite steady, as the growth rate of the country's real GDP is continuously positive but incremental. Employment is expected to increase slightly as well, with travel and tourism expected to contribute over 2.8 billion jobs in France.
