Ministers were set a summer holiday homework assignment by President Francois Hollande "What is your vision of France in 2025?" Weekly French magazine Le Point has seen five of these broadly optimistic ministerial essays, writes France 24.

Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici's assessment is massively positive, even if it is tempered by the prediction that France's position among the world's top economic powers will drop to 8th or 9th place from the 5th place "if the huge growth of the emerging economies continues apace".

Housing Minister Cecile Duflot's vision is particularly rosy, and thanks to plans she is putting in place, France will benefit from six million new homes and "everyone will have a roof over their heads in a quality environment. Access to housing will no longer be a stress factor. Finding a home will even become a pleasant step in people's lives.

Interior Minister Manuel Valls predicts that policing will be transformed by the Internet and new Web technologies: "We already have a Gendarmerie 2.0. By 2025 France will have a Gendarmerie 3.0." He added that "security strategies will be driven by technological innovation" which will bring the country's security forces "closer to the general population".
