With a total of 103 000 workers, Ile de France region is as big as entire Germany in term of jobs and it's two times the Italy's workforce, two very influent countries too. In an interview done by Air & Cosmos a famous French magazine, Valerie Pécresse, President of regional council of Ile-de-France, put forward the willingness to improve and redevelop industrialization in this place.
