Canal France International – Participation of Chrysoula Zacharopoulou (July 11, 2023)


On July 11, Chrysoula Zacharopoulou, Minister of State for Development, Francophonie and International Partnerships, attached to the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, is opening the Media and Development forum organized by Canal France International (CFI) in Paris.

For the next two days, the French media development agency (CFI) will bring together more than 300 journalists from 40 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Arab world to discuss “Meeting Information Challenges.”

The Minister of State’s participation in this event is yet another opportunity to illustrate France’s support for all those who defend the freedom to inform, our backing of independent media and press freedom, and our commitment to building a trustworthy information space.

For the past year, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna has made support for the media and access to independent, reliable, quality information a French diplomatic priority.
