The French conduct business in the industry and financial services sector, both combining for 60% of French business activity. When interacting in business, formality and organization are major French aspects. A rule of thumb is that in business, the French waste little time talking about topics they don't know about. Furthermore they like to get to the point when discussing business. This may seem like an abrupt way of conversing but in France business people like to focus more on solutions and less on endless chatter. This also extends to general French culture as people enjoy being business like in dealings and interaction with others.
