It's done, since last night (August 26), Fleur Pellerin has become Minister of Culture and Communication. She gladly succeeds Aurélie Filippeti, who wished to resign from the government no later than Monday, August 25.
A lot of work for Fleur Pellerin, Minister of Culture and Communication
Former Minister Delegate in charge of SMEs, Innovation and Digital Economy in the government of Jean-Marc Ayrault then Secretary of State in charge of Foreign Trade, Tourism Development and French people living abroad in the government of Manuel Valls, our new Minister of Culture and Communication is given completely new tasks. No time to get bored !
Even if his predecessor Aurélie Fillippeti started the current files, they must be continued.
The heaviest issue is surely that of intermittent entertainment. Will she try to renegotiate the law amending the unemployment insurance agreement for intermittent workers?
Fleur Pellerin will also have to face France Televisions and its recovery plan which provides for 650 job cuts. Will they have to return the ad from 20:00 p.m.? In any case, this is what the current CEO of France Télévisions Rémy Pflimlin pleads: “The 20 pm to 21 pm timeframe would allow us to have powerful screens, including half-time for sporting events”.
It will also have to deal with the imminent arrival in France of Netflix, which will quickly transform the media as a whole, like all video services. A law should see the light of day, preventing the giant Netflix from directly competing with French VOD services.
Pellerin flower, Minister of Culture and Communication since last night will also have to review the bills on creation. The fight against illegal downloading of Hadopi is still ongoing.
Huge projects underway for Fleur Pellerin.
