The Ministère des Relations internationales, de la Francophonie et du Commerce extérieur (MRIFCE) has launched the 35th edition of a program called “Stage en didactique du français, culture et société québécoises,” focusing on the teaching of French as a second language and Québec culture and society.
Pauline Marois, the Premier of Québec, welcomes the decision by the heads of state and government to call for the Francophonie to develop an economic strategy that will be tabled at its next Summit in Senegal in 2014. The Premier wanted to underscore her avowed desire to strengthen the francophone economic space by pooling the efforts of all economic players.
This year, the Québec Government Office in Berlin is celebrating its 10th anniversary. In fact, it was a Cultural Agency that the Québec government first opened in the German capital in 1999. This Agency later became an Office reporting to the Québec Government Office in Munich. Since then, Québec’s representation in Berlin has continued to promote Québec in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
