Letter from President

Dear Friends,

The committee and myself would like to thank each and every one of you, diplomatic members and volunteers for all the wonderful moments we have shared together.

Welcoming our foreign friends to France, getting to know each other better, helping them discover the riches of our country and, in return, discovering theirs - this has been our mission ever since Marie-Thérèse François-Poncet founded our association over forty-seven years ago. There’s no need to go back over it now, as each and every one of us, whether as hosts or as foreign friends, have already experienced this for themselves with our activities.

And yet, our association does not end there, it is continuing its mission by being even more innovative, inclusive and open to society as a whole. So, for the start of the new school year, we have begun work on a number of projects on themes relating to gender equality, diversity, the environment and even nuclear energy and ecology. We’ve also been interested in organising meetings with key players in the modern world.

But this end of the year was particularly rich in exceptional events, concerts, international lunch at the Quai d’Orsay and exhibition of the workshops.

Have a wonderful Summer everyone !

Good bye and best wishes to those of you leaving us for new adventures.
Looking forward to seeing you at the end of September.

Véronique Debieuvre, Présidente
