ANEM (the National Association of the Elected Representatives in Mountain Areas in France) welcomes the implementation of the Act II of the Mountain Law decided by the French Prime Minister in France.
Laurent Wauquiez, Member of the Parliament elected in Haute-Loire, and Marie-Noëlle Battistel, Member of the Parliament elected in Isère, respectively President and Secretary General of ANEM, welcome the mission entrusted by the Prime Minister to two Mountain Members of the Parliament.
In France, mountain policy is based on the recognition of the specific characteristics of mountain areas by the law of 9th January 1985. In fact, this law is, directly or indirectly, at the origin of a large amount of measures connected with many different areas such as urbanism, tourism, agriculture, risks prevention and organisation of public services or tax incentive among others.
Thirty years after the adoption of the Mountain Law, two Members of the Parliament have been asked to give their report for mid-May 2015, aiming to obtain some concrete and operational suggestions in order to write a trustful Act II of the Mountain Law.
