The article presents forecasts for the chemical industry in France in 2007-2008. Union des Industries Chimiques (UIC) predicted that the sector will grow by 2.5% in 2007 and 3.1% in 2008. UIC based this outlook on the strong global economy, despite the weakness in U.S. markets. However, UIC warned that the strong euro could harm trade outside Europe, even though the continent remain the focus for the French chemical industry's trade.
