Ambassadors’ Week 2017 ( 28 to 31 August)
Since 1993, Ambassadors’ Week has brought together every year in late August the heads of French diplomatic missions from all over the world. This event provides the opportunity for the highest French authorities to set the priorities of our diplomacy.
It also provides an occasion for ambassadors to talk among themselves and to debate with elected representatives, experts and representatives from civil society and the private sector. Some of the week’s events are open to the public enabling the public to discover what French ambassadors do and to better understand today’s principal diplomatic issues.
You will find here the speeches by the French President, Prime Minister and Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs at the Ambassadors’ Week, which took place 28-31 August 2017.
