Quai d’Orsay – First meeting of the Operators Committee (Paris, February 9, 2016)


Laurent Fabius convened the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development Operators Committee at the Quai d’Orsay this morning.

This was the first meeting to be chaired by the minister in this format.

This diverse network has a key role to play in implementing our policies to promote France’s influence and attractiveness, notably in the areas of development, foreign trade, culture and French education abroad. It has been radically modernized over the last few years, with for example the creation of Business France and Expertise France, and the development of close collaboration between the French Development Agency and the Caisse des dépôts et consignations (Deposits and Consignments Fund).
