New name for neighbouring French PACA region

New name for neighbouring French PACA region

By Staff Writer - December 17, 2017


The regional council of the neighbouring region of France, currently known as Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur, or PACA for short, has decided in favour of a name change.

Meeting on Friday, December 15, the elected council members voted in favour of a name change to Region Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. While the new name is even longer than the rather clumsy acronym PACA, the hope is that the simple “Region Sud”, or “South Region”, will soon enter general use.

One of the members of the council, Roland Giberti, who represents the Bouches-du-Rhone, said that the word “South” conjures up a very positive image of a high quality of life, beautiful countryside and sunshine.
