Soft power – Digital sphere - 4M Paris Meetings (April 20-21, 2016)

More than 150 online media representatives from nearly 40 countries of Africa, the Arab world, the Caucasus and Southeast Asia will attend the 2016 4M Paris Meetings on April 20-21.

Organized since 2011 by CFI (the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development’s agency for media cooperation), the Quai d’Orsay and Paris City Hall, these meetings are designed to foster the development of more reliable and independent online information sources and to allow young participants in the digital media revolution to discuss the latest innovations. This year’s edition is part of a “Grand Tour” that includes some 40 stops around France that showcase the exceptional cultural dynamism of our provinces.

Meetings can be followed on the Foreign Ministry’s and CFI’s social networks. Interviews with influential French-speaking, English-speaking and Arabic-speaking bloggers will be posted on Twitter.
