Speech by Mr. Laurent Fabius at the Global Summit of Women (Paris, June 5 to 7, 2014)

Laurent Fabius will today participate in the Global Summit of Women. His speech at the first round table entitled “Doing business with France” will underscore the government’s commitment to women’s entrepreneurship and leadership, which are a priority of our action in France and a goal of our diplomacy.

The Global Summit of Women will take place from June 5 to 7 in France. It is being organized by the NGO, GlobeWomen. Every year it brings together almost 1,000 business women, women in senior civil service positions and female political leaders from more than 70 countries.

France’s decision to host the 24th edition of this event reflects our commitment to public action aimed at promoting gender diversity and equality in France and abroad.
