“For the first time in history, the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of La Francophonie is held in the country where French is not an official state language. Therefore, the effort of the Georgian parliament is noteworthy in hosting the event,” said the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of La Francophonie (APF), Francis Drouin, in his opening speech at the Parliamentary Assembly of La Francophonie (APF).
According to Francis Drouin, this year’s session provided a chance to broaden Francophonie’s conceptual and political frontiers.
“The Francophonie is well-represented in Georgia. Georgia’s membership in the Francophonie international organization will mark its 20th anniversary next year. Georgia has been represented in the APF as an observer since 2001. It has now joined the organization as an associate member,” he stated.
Francis Drouin emphasized that the number of French-language speakers in Georgia was growing, which “once again underlines the magnificence of the French language.”
The Parliament of Georgia is hosting the 48th session of the Parliamentary Assembly of La Francophonie (APF).
