VI) Conclusion.

Project "LA FRANCE" aspires to be a unifying endeavor above all, generating more than 1,200,000 hours of work, thereby making a modest contribution to the current problems of unemployment.

It will also strive to promote and facilitate understanding of naval shipyards, whether military or civilian, to the general public.

It will provide the youth in search of direction, a panel of skills and training that are still relevant today, and that remain at the heart of our great ports, of naval construction, of trade. This particular facet will ensure the rich exchange and transmission of expertise from those who possess them to those who wish to acquire them.

It will allow the revival of a partnership between officials and the general public, brought together under the banner of the Project that aims to recreate one of the most magnificent dream weavers : The greatest Tall Ship in the world.

The construction project of the five-masted ship "LA FRANCE" will be a testimony that our Culture can and must be an engine for our Economy and that it is also in drawing from our past that we can build certain elements of our future.
