Name of creator
Brittany (French Bretagne, Breton Breizh), is an administrative region in the northwest of France, comprising four Departments: Ile-et-Vilaine, Côtes-d'Armor, Finistère and Morbihan. The 'Comite Economique et Social de Bretagne' (the Economic and Social Council of Brittany) is an advisory assembly of representatives from economic and social sectors of the Region. It advises the Conseil Régional de Bretagne (Britanny Regional Council) on projects submitted for approval, and deliberates on issues falling under the competence and powers of the Regional Council. The C. E. S. also carries out research, and issues proposals for action. It is now known as Le Conseil économique et social régional. In 1980, France declared "l'annee du patrimoine" (heritage year), and CES was involved in events in Brittany.
