    France was thoughthought to be
    The ADELE project wants to not only promote an accessible system for all citizens to have access to technology but is also promoting a better relationship between french citizens and their government. Having the support and trust of your government in a time where everything can be traced and can be copied and sent out and then stored anywhere is key for a society to continue to grow and function well. France has also put their money where their mouths are. They've spent a considerable amount of more money their their European counterparts that is dedicated to their technological advancement.
    The other project France has been working on is the Digital France 2012. This project was announced in 2009 and has been progressing ever since. Programs include; creating a congregation of Ministers to oversee the uses and limitations of the plan, distribute electronic identity cards to promote security and launching a new type of satellite to ensure even those in the most remote parts of the country will have access to high speed internet.

    ADELE
    Joe Stuart
    The ADELE project, gaining its name from the longer title "ADministration ELEctronique," established four primary concerns for effective implementation and a focus on 14 of 140 suggested services intended to simplify the lives of citizens, public employees, businesses, and local authorities. The four concerns of the ADELE project were to listen to feedback, make services accessible to all, establish a pact of trust with citizens, and be more effective while controlling expenditure.
    Listening: The Secretary of State of State Reform introduced a poll in 2002 that is carried out annually to receive feedback from users of online services. Beyond the polls, the government has regularly consulted with the institutions involved, including local authorities, industries, health care providers, and the National Commission for Data Protection (CNIL). In addition, extensive testing of the sites and services are done regularly to find flaws as well as discover ways to make the system more user-friendly. Finally, the government has consulted with lawyers, sociologists, parliamentarians, and even philosophers to determine the social impact of the system.

    Additionally, the ADELE plan calls for an electronic identification card that, once the individual's social status and identity has been verified, can be used for a variety of tasks including receiving a passport without providing specific documentation each time. -Joe Stewart

    Jazmine Allen
    Previously, France was though to be a nation that was not too comfortable with all of the changes taking place around the globe but as you see, France has been taking major steps to advance it's position as being a well adjusted country in an ever-changing global environment. These plans, the ADELE and the Digital France 2012, both are the steps being taken to improve their presence in a world that is becoming more and more connected. {031708_191053-764578.jpg}
