Nicole Fontaine in favour of the euro on the Riviera
Do we have to encourage a double price billing or directly pass to euro ?President of the European Parliament, Nicole Fontaine, which always speaks in favour of euro every time she is on the Riviera, has wondered what's the best way to follow when she visited the small market of Beaulieu-sur-mer. A privileged place : during the passage to the single currency on February 17th 2002, markets and shopkeepers will have to be in front of confused customers. So, president is not as sure about the necessity to provide a double billing during a certain time further.In the beginning of the week, in Juan-les-Pins, she already talked with shopkeepers and company managers during a meeting organized by the registered management center in the Alpes-Maritimes. Nicole Fontaine, who has mentioned the delay of some entrepreneurs, has reminded them that the euro would open them a market of 290 million people. A serious stake.
