France has always considered Macau as an important partner. It has intended to strengthen its present role in several areas such as culture, arts, language, technology or infrastructure facilities.

The Consul General also paid tribute to the Alliance Française de Macao, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and to the FMBA for being so active in Macau after only four years of existence.

The Consul General rounded up his speech by proposing a toast to the People’s Republic of China, to the Special Administrative Region of Macau and to the many links between the two territories.
