French Week 2017

FRENCH WEEK will be held this year under the slogan Digital Life. The programme is organized by the French-Serbian Chamber of Commerce and offers a range of cultural, educational and business events for all lovers of French culture. The aim is also to promote French business in Serbia. French Week is traditionally connected to the third quarter of November, when restaurants and cafés throughout France await the Beaujolais Nouveau, a young French wine that is sold immediately after fermentation. This year again, a rich programme can be expected, with fine French wines and culinary specialities, alongside French brands and companies, but also digital trends.
