The French Government, led by Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin, is making an active contribution to preparing Paris's bid with, above all,
the involvement of the Sports Minister, Jean-François Lamour, who is contributing all his experience of the Olympic World.
On the regional level, the project is supported by the entire Ile-de-France Regional
Council, chaired by Jean-Paul Huchon.
The support of the various public authorities is clearly demonstrated by the
composition of the Bid Committee.
Moreover, the departments of the various public authorities are closely associated
with the project's preparation for Paris 2012 through permanent working groups
and according to their competencies.
