European Union – Greece – Speech by Harlem Désir during a symposium at the French Senate (March 21, 2016)


Harlem Désir, Minister of State for European Affairs, will bring the symposium on “Debt, democracy, Europe: What does the future hold for Greece?” at the French Senate to a close at 6:00 pm today.

This symposium, organized by Luc Carvounas, Chair of the France-Greece Inter-Parliamentary Friendship Group, will bring together political figures, economists, journalists and civil society actors from our two countries.

Harlem Désir will reaffirm France’s active support in helping Greece to overcome the considerable economic and migration challenges it is facing, which, moreover, also affect the European Union as a whole.
