Discover France

France is the first tourist destination in the world, due to the great diversity of landscapes and cities, where history and culture take a large place. If it’s known for its tourist’s attractiveness and “art de vivre”, it’s also an agricultural leader in Europe. It’s the first agri-food sector in Europe because the country, including overseas departments, has a wide range of plants. The result as a dynamic, innovative and international plant sector.
