“Bienvenue en France” recognises International Women’s Day in its own way
Breakfast at the Quai d’Orsay with Madame Le Drian was a fantastic opportunity to bring together foreign diplomats and put into practice this wonderful quote from our BEF President, Amanda Gourdault-Montagne, “’There is really no such thing as a ‘foreign’ language, it is simply the language of others’’.
