2014 Ambassadors’ Conference (Paris, August 28 to 30, 2014) [fr]
The 2014 Ambassadors’ Conference will take place from August 28 to 30. It will be opened by President Hollande.
Mr. Laurent Fabius has chosen “France’s external action: global diplomacy” as the theme of the conference, which will provide an opportunity to illustrate the Quai d’Orsay’s role in orchestrating France’s external action.
Mr. Laurent Fabius would therefore like to exchange views with the ambassadors on how France can best mobilize its efforts and establish coherency between all external action tools: economic diplomacy, the fight against climate change, tourism, crisis management, European action, cultural diplomacy, sports diplomacy as well as development policy. Numerous personalities are expected to attend, including German Minister of Foreign Affairs Frank-Walter Steinmeier. A tour of Dassault-Systèmes will take place today in the context of economic diplomacy.
The 2014 Ambassadors’ Conference kicked off yesterday afternoon at the Quai d’Orsay with an unprecedented meeting between the ambassadors and several hundred students, researchers, representatives of associations and entrepreneurs. Mr. Laurent Fabius participated in a debate devoted to economic diplomacy.
