Intervention de Mme Louise Beaudoin Ministre d'État aux Relations internationales et ministre responsable de la Francophonie à l'occasion de la Conférence ministérielle de la Francophonie.

Ms Beaudoin's address touched on the following themes: globalization, cultural diversity, the WTO, language, democracy, and modernity. On the topic of cultural diversity, she maintained that "The right of states and governments to freely support domestic cultural production and choose the measures with which to do so should not be called into question by the logic of economic integration. This is a concern that Québec shares with many at the international level, particularly within the Francophonie." (In French only)
