Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with economic relations between Yugoslavia and France during the 1950s. It focuses on three predominant factors, namely the inherited Yugoslav debt, the ongoing financial relations and commercial exchanges and investments. The paper aims to show that economic relations were conditioned by the general terms of political and social realities in Europe at the end of the Second World War, by the internal needs of the reconstruction that have strained the finances of both countries, by the stronger relations on the political level than on the commercial one, and that they have also mirrored wider problems of the Yugoslav economy and its connection with the European economic area.
