Category:Regions of France
This category is for administrative regions of France. France is administratively divided into 27 administrative regions: 22 of these are in metropolitan France (one of them, Corse, is on the island of Corsica, although strictly speaking Corse is in fact a “territorial collectivity”, not a région, but is referred to as a région in common speech), 5 are overseas. Régions are further subdivided into départements. All other overseas collectivities are not grouped or subdivided into régions or départements and have their own local administrative system.
- There will be only 13 metropolitan French regions (7 new ones replacing 16 existing ones, and 6 still unchanged), completely effective in 2016. However they may still change by moving some departement into another bordering region, by mutual agreement between the departement and the two bordering regions.
- The 7 new regions have been officialized but their names are provisional. They may still adopt new names by completing their creation project before July 2015 (in which they will choose their capital). For now only Centre (whose borders have not changed) has already adopted a new name, already effective since 1 January 2014.
- The 5 overseas regions (which are also departements) will not change.
