Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, received Jacques Maillot on March 3. He has decided, together with Alain Vidalies, Minister of State for Transport, Marine Affairs and Fisheries, to appoint Mr. Maillot as Chargé de Mission for the Development of River and Sea Cruises. France currently performs below its potential in these two rapidly expanding tourist markets, which should be extensively developed.
Jacques Maillot, founder of Nouvelles Frontières and an independent member of the Supervisory Board of Compagnie des Alpes since 2004, has proven experience in the field of tourism which he will use to promote the development of France’s river and sea cruises sector.
This is a voluntary position.
