Development - André Vallini’s participation in the “International Dialogue on Migration” (Geneva, October 11, 2016)


André Vallini, Minister of State for Development and Francophonie, took part in the “International Dialogue on Migration” in Geneva today. This workshop, organized by the International Organization for Immigration (IOM), has taken place every year since 2001 and is one of the main forums for discussing this issue.

In a context marked by the scale of population displacement and migration, André Vallini reaffirmed the urgent need to provide responsible and supportive responses by tackling the root causes of migration.

During his visit, he also met with senior officials from the international agencies and organizations in Geneva (IOM, Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights), as well as with officials from international organizations in the field of health including the Global Alliance for Vaccine and Immunization (GAVI).
