What One Euro Can Buy: France Will Sell Tahitian Military Base to French Polynesia

Euro_coin France Radio New Zealand International reported that the the French defence minister, Herve Morin, said this week that the French military base in Tahiti will be sold to French Polynesia for one euro. He announced the sale after talks with the French Polynesian president, Gaston Tong Sang, and Philip Schyle, the mayor of Arue (where the base is located). Mr Morin reportedly said that the 27-hectar site will be turned into a “breeding ground for businesses.”
