Despite the small number of titles in France, Reed Electronics Group has decided to reduce the cost of space in CIE France by 15% for 2005. A bold move, especially from the publishing house that lays claim to the most expensive electronics magazine on the planet, with EPN (although to be fair, CIE is also reducing its circulation!). CIE has struggled to gain market share in France against the powerful titles from Groupe Tests, so it will be interesting to see if this move changes the situation.
