17th Francophonie Summit – Visit by Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs (Yerevan, 11-12 October 2018)

Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian will accompany President Emmanuel Macron at the 17th Francophonie Summit in Yerevan from October 11 to 12. In Yerevan, France will reaffirm its goals for La Francophonie, as outlined by President Macon in his speech at the Institut de France on March 20. This summit will provide an important opportunity to reaffirm the importance we attach to the mission of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie to help promote peace, democracy, human rights and gender equality. La Francophonie represents a unique community of experiences, values and views that will soon bring together more than 700 million women and men around the world. French is the world’s second most learned language, with more than 125 million students and around 900,000 French language teachers abroad. It is the second most popular language for international information in the media, the third most popular language for business and the fourth most popular language for the Internet. It is a working language of major importance in all international organizations and, along with English, the only language spoken on all five continents. The number of French-speakers should increase significantly in the years to come, and France wants to help strengthen the role of French as a major language for discussions and communication, and give it new momentum as a business language. As the President pointed out, French can be the language that creates tomorrow’s world and can embrace the world’s richness and variety without denying its diverse roots. In this regard La Francophonie must do justice to all the languages that are undermined or isolated by globalization and promote intercultural exchanges and multilingualism. As Africa is the continent where the international future of the French language will play out, France will ascribe particular importance to appointing the secretary-general of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, supporting the candidacy of Louise Mushikiwabo, who is endorsed by the African Union. At the summit, France will present a strategy for the Organization to promote gender equality and the rights and empowerment of women and children, which are priorities for the President and the Government. Hosted by Armenia, this summit will feature a tribute to Charles Aznavour, who embodied the bond between France, Armenia, and the French-speaking world....

XVIIème Sommet de la Francophonie – vive la Francophonie en Birmanie !

XVII Francophonie Summit – Long live La Francophonie in Myanmar!   The 17th Francophonie summit will be held on October 11 and 12 in Yerevan, Armenia. The Conference of Heads of State and government of French-speaking countries is gathering around the theme: “Living together in solidarity, sharing humanistic values and respect for diversity: a source of peace and prosperity for the Francophone world”. It will adopt a Francophonie strategy for the promotion of equality between women and men, rights and the empowerment of women and girls. Do you know the Francophonie in Myanmar?: 2,300 people taking French courses, half in international schools and universities, the other at the Institut Français de Birmanie in Yangon and the French Cultural Center in Mandalay. In addition, 1,200 guides, doctors, non-governmental and international organization staff and other Francophones use the French language every day. Nearly 1,000 French people, registered at the Consulate of the French Embassy in Yangon, live in Myanmar and at least as many French-speaking expatriates. With more than 150 students and a rapid growth of its international and Burmese staff, the Joseph Kessel International French High School in Yangon is a leading institution in the development of the Francophonie in Myanmar. Our actions in favor of the Francophonie in Myanmar aim to strengthen the place of French in the Myanmar education system, particularly in science and technology courses, to broaden the learning of French in international schools, to support the ongoing reform of the education system by promoting medium-term learning of French as a second foreign language at school. We support the development of relations of  l’Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) with Myanmar universities that could integrate the AUF’s global network and benefit from the expertise and know-how of other members.  As a meeting place for Francophonie in the country, the Institut Français de Birmanie organizes annual family friendly and quality events, on the occasion of the International Day of Francophonie (March 20). The Institut Français de Birmanie and the French Cultural Center in Mandalay offer modern pedagogical tools and offer an international certification of language skills (DELF / DALF). Joseph Kessel International French High School in Yangon is a partner institution of the French Teaching Agency Abroad and complies with French national education programs, adapted to promote plurilingualism. The lessons are taught in French and in English. Schooling is sanctioned by the French diploma of the baccalaureate, which is internationally recognized. It gives access to the university in France, in all Europe and in most countries of the world (including for example the United States, Great Britain or Singapore). Registrations are still possible for the current school year. For more information, follow us...
