France is launching a communications blitz to prepare its population for the entry of the euro into full circulation in one year’s time. The government has a budget of $32m (&£21m) to organise a full information and education campaign, which will include TV, radio and press ads, with telephone advice hotlines and ten million explanatory brochures and kits for school children. The euro will formally become legal tender on January 1 2002 and France is one of 12 countries making the transition.
