In the presence of a large number of guests, H.E. French Ambassador Christine Moro, H.E. Belgian Ambassador Leo D’aes, and Ms Chantal Moreno, director of the regional office of CE Europe MOF, jointly organised a reception at the Embassy of France to commemorate the successful completion of the Month of Francophonie.
The embassies of Francophone countries and their partners provided a rich and varied cultural programme: songs, music, literature, comics, poetry, theatre, film etc. However, at the centre of focus was politically engaged Francophonie: freedom of expression in newspaper cartoons, tissues of ethnicity in literature and comics, economic aspects of the strategies of the French language, in an effort to open up French-speaking markets to Serbian companies.
Speaking on this occasion, H.E. Moro conveyed the message of MOF Secretary-General Michael Jean calling on young people to take advantage of what Francophonie can offer Serbia. The reception was also attended by Serbian Culture Minister Ivan Tasovac.
