    [eng] Franc Zone : a strong monetary area nearing economic integration This article deals with original characteristics of Franc Zone which proved its capability to evolve with the member states' economies since it was created in 1939. Moreover, the peg of CFA and Comorian Francs to the euro in 1999 didn't question the Franc Zone and strengthened its advantages. At last, the benefits of the monetary union will be accentuated only by a strong economic integration. JEL classification : E42, F32, F33, O55 [fre] Cet article revient sur les caractéristiques originales des mécanismes de la Zone franc, qui a prouvé sa capacité à s'adapter aux évolutions des économies des pays membres, depuis sa création en 1939. Il est ensuite avancé que l'arrimage des francs CFA et comoriens à l'euro, en 1999, non seulement n'a pas remis en cause la Zone franc, mais en a renforcé les avantages. Il apparaît enfin que les bénéfices de l'union monétaire ne pourront être amplifiés que par un renforcement de l'intégration économique. Classification JEL : E42, F32, F33, O55
