The French government’s plans to help France achieve the 2030 digital transformation goals set out by the European Union include an increased emphasis on early digital learning, support for businesses and the rollout of digital systems for 250 essential public services.  

On 25th March, the French government unveiled its roadmap for the future. The new strategy, which builds upon the EU’s own plans to make the 2020s the “digital decade” for Europe, comes after a 2023 report found France to be lagging behind its neighbours in terms of the digital transformation of public services and the espousal of digital technology by the nation’s small and medium-sized businesses. 

The new plans are focused on the four key pillars of digital skills, digital infrastructure, digital conversion of businesses and the digitalisation of public services. 


To meet these missions head on, the government has pledged to up the ante regarding country-wide fibre optics and 4G access as well as to improve the support available for businesses in the digital age. A total of 250 essential public service administrations will also be fully digitalised by 2025 and there are forthcoming changes to education, including an increased focus on maths and the nationwide teaching of digital skills from primary school.

France ranked 12th in the 2022 Digital Economy and Society Index, an indicator that the European Commission uses to monitor the progress made by member states.
