Le rendez-vous de la feria internacional del libro (fil) de guadalajara: «un jalon dans l'action internationale de promotion de la diversité culturelle»

Mme LINE BEAUCHAMP, ministre de la Culture et des Communications du Québec

Guadalajara, le 30 novembre 2003 - 2003/11/30

Speaking at the opening of the Cultural Diversity Conference during the International Book Fair (FIL) in Guadalajera, Mexico, Ms Beauchamp declared that "I would like this conference to be the high point of Québec's presence in Guadalajara, a shining example not only for the visitors and intellectuals attending the FIL, but also an international milestone in the promotion of cultural diversity." The Cultural Diversity Conference provides Catalonian, French, Mexican, Québec, and Latin American representatives an opportunity to explain the challenges of protecting and promoting cultural diversity in light of globalization and the liberalization of trade, and set courses of action with respect to the pending convention on cultural diversity at UNESCO.
