Economic diplomacy is a top priority for the French Government. In April 2013, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Laurent Fabius, stated that the ministry "should also be, through all its tasks, the home of businesses".
This topic will serve as the central issue in the presentation that will be delivered by the Minister Delegate for French Nationals Abroad, attached to the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ms. Hélène Conway-Mouret. Mr. François Delattre Ambassador of France to the United States will accompany the Minister in her official visit to Miami.
