Development – “The French and France’s Development Assistance Policy” Barometer

A few days ahead of the UN Summit on Sustainable Development Goals, and two months ahead of the Paris Climate Conference, the French Development Agency has published the 10th edition of “The French and France’s Development Assistance Policy” Barometer.

This survey underscores the generosity of the French toward the most vulnerable people, the need for sustainable development all over the world and the importance of the link between development assistance and the fight against climate disruption.

Two out of every three French citizens (67%) say they are in favor of the development policy, i.e. an increase of 5 percentage points within the space of a year. This policy is a symbol of pride for more than one out of every two French citizens. 76% consider climate disruption to be “a serious threat.”



Poland - Economic diplomacy – French Touch campaign (September 23 to October 10)

The French Touch campaign will celebrate France in Poland through a series of cultural, tourist and commercial events from September 23 to October 10.

Flavors, fashion, and culture: French Touch celebrates France and the French art of living through a range of distinctive and varied activities across a large number of sectors, such as the retail sector, the car industry, air transport, the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry, the agri-food industry, communications and telecommunications, the wine and spirit industry, apparel, fashion and tourism.
