Jersey Represented at Regional Conference of the Assemblée Parlementaire de la Francophonie

Thursday 2 November 14:07

Deputy Montfort Tadier represented the States Assembly last week at the European regional conference of the Assemblée Parlementaire de la Francophonie (APF) in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The conference, which took place from 23rd to 26th October, brought together parliamentarians from 17 different countries across Europe, including France, Belgium and Switzerland.  The main subject of discussion was how to develop strategies to promote job growth in an economically sustainable and socially fair way.  As part of the discussions, the delegates received various presentations on initiatives currently being pursued in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Deputy Tadier said:   “Jersey’s membership of the APF allows us very welcome opportunities to work with parliamentarians from other jurisdictions.  Through the APF, we can speak to countries and jurisdictions with which we might otherwise not interact. At the present time, and in the context of Brexit, such opportunities are invaluable.   Last week’s conference was a very useful experience in sharing knowledge and experience with colleagues from parliaments elsewhere.  Learning about what has happened in relation to the economy of Bosnia and Herzegovina since the war of the 1990s was extremely interesting and it provided a strong platform for our discussions about the economic and social factors relating to growth – a topic which affects us all, regardless of the size of the jurisdiction we live in.
 
It was also a reminder of the importance of encouraging and promoting language learning, especially French, which remains an important language for us, locally and globally.”
