Ambassadors’ Week – Gourmet cooking and training in tourism-related professions (September 1, 2016)


Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development Jean-Marc Ayrault visited Paris’s Cordon Bleu in the company of its president, André Cointreau. While there, he will speak with some of the school’s students.

This event reflects the priority we ascribe to providing better training in tourism-related professions. Gourmet cooking in particular offers an image of excellence and helps strengthen France’s appeal to tourists. That is why the Ministry has expanded its special relationship with the country’s most important training institutes.
