Living in French Guiana
French Guiana, as the name suggests, is an overseas territory of France. It is located in the north-eastern coast of South America and is bordered by Brazil to the south and Suriname to the west. A considerable amount of its territory is covered by rainforest; as a result, the population of French Guiana is heavily concentrated in the capital city of Cayenne, where 50% of the 280,000 inhabitants live. Unlike some other overseas territories, French Guiana is actually classified as a region of France, and thus France’s membership in the European Union is inclusive of French Guiana. The region is rather dependent on the French mainland for economic assistance, in the form of subsidies and trade agreements. However, the Guiana Space Centre provides jobs and contributes significantly to growth, as does gold mining which makes up around 30% of the regions economy. Politically the region is relatively stable, which is likely helped by the French government oversight. However, it is currently facing border control issues; immigrants are illegally entering the country, as are unlawful gold miners from bordering countries. The French government has been active in its assistance towards countering these problems. French Guiana’s culture retains South American foundations, and carnival is a big event on natives’ calendars.
