The Francophonie Days in Latvia will be celebrated with an extensive program of cultural events this year, the event's patron, Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics (Zatlers Reform Party), French Ambassador to Latvia Chantal Poiret and Swiss Ambassador to Latvia Gabriela Nutzi Sulpizio announced during a joint press conference today.

Rinkevics emphasized that he wishes to foster Latvia's comprehension of Francophonie, the French language, cultural and educational opportunities in the French-speaking countries. The minister also lauded the constantly increasing number of opportunities to learn French as Latvia prepares for the European Union presidency and strengthens state administration with the knowledge of foreign languages. The ambassadors in turn emphasized that Francophonie does not only refer to the French language, but also to common values and "unity in diversity".

The Francophonie Days in Latvia will be celebrated with various concerts, exhibitions, conferences and contests. "K-Suns" movie theater and the French Institute will offer movie screenings of International Francophonie Organization members and observers - France, Switzerland, Canada, Belgium, the Czech Republic and Greece.

The festival's program is available on the French Institute's homepage - "http://www.institut-francais.lv/fr/actualites/310-francophonie-2012".
