Did you know that there is a country in North America which uses the Euro, has a long history and you've never heard of it? And if I'm the only one who was not aware of it, I apologize in advance. I'm sure our Canadian friends know more about it than the average American. https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/sb.html Saint Pierre and Miquelon It has a tiny population of ~6,000 people. It is located off Newfoundland, Canada They are formerly a French colony, and largely still tied to France in terms of culture and support Economy - overview: The inhabitants have traditionally earned their livelihood by fishing and by servicing fishing fleets operating off the coast of Newfoundland. The economy has been declining, however, because of disputes with Canada over fishing quotas and a steady decline in the number of ships stopping at Saint Pierre. In 1992, an arbitration panel awarded the islands an exclusive economic zone of 12,348 sq km to settle a longstanding territorial dispute with Canada, although it represents only 25% of what France had sought. France heavily subsidizes the islands to the great betterment of living standards. The government hopes an expansion of tourism will boost economic prospects. Fish farming, crab fishing, and agriculture are being developed to diversify the local economy. Recent test drilling for oil may pave the way for development of the energy sector.
