Slide 3 - 1. A very old friendship: some historical milestones 1562: First French presence identified at Fort Caroline 1685: the first Huguenots (French Protestants) settle in America 1754: France Loses its Canadian territories to England and Louisiana to Spain, which triggers the French Acadians exodus to Louisiana and New England 1778: after the signing of the Treaty of Commerce and Frienship, Which historically makes my country America’s first and oldest ally, France supports the American revolutionaries. 44,000 French troops serve during the War of Independence 1803: France cedes Louisiana (recovered from Spain in 1800) to the Unites States 1835: Alexis de Toqueville publishes « Democracy in America » 1886: France donates the Statue of Liberty to the United States
Slide 4 - 1917: The United States enters the World War I. Two million American troops fight in France and, by 1918, 115,000 have died 1927: Charles Lindbergh lands in France and becomes the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane June 6, 1944: D-Day. American soldiers land on Normandy Beaches to put and end to the Worl War II 1990: France joins the United Sates in a coalition to liberate Kuweit from Iraqi occupation From General La Fayette decisive support to the American colonies in 1781 to the early morning landing on Normandy beaches in June 1944, the Franco-American relation has produced two centuries of friendship.
Slide 5 - 2. Healthy and active dialogue: a few aspects of our bilateral exchanges 2.1 A high level of economic integration: The United States is the top destination for French investments worldwide 2,800 French companies operate here, employing more than 550,000 workers all over the country Similarly, the United States is the largest foreign investor in France, employing over 650,000 people with agregate investment estimated at $70 billion in 2008 On average, over $1 billion in commercial transactions take place every day between the two countries
Slide 6 - 2.2 A better understanding through educational and artistic exchange programs: United States and France are major partners when it comes to education, culture and arts The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs alone spends $5 million a year in promoting schools and universities exchanges with the United States, as well as art production Many organizations, like the French American Cultural Exchange (FACE), the Partner University Fund (PUF), the French Heritage language program (FHLP) and Culturesfrance, supported by a number of Foundations and Trustees, notably the France Florida Foundation for the Arts, offer substantial grants every year in the field of higher education, cinema, music, dance, theater and visual arts 7,000 French students in US Universities / 17,000 American in France every year There are too many joint scientific programs to be named here. The latest Franco-American Commission for Science and Technology meeting, in June 2009 in Paris, gathered 70 renowned research fellows.
Slide 7 - 2.3 An American in Paris, A French in Miami (and elsewhere) From Thomas Jefferson to Jim Morrison, many famous Americans lived in France for several years or for the rest of their lives Although no official figure is available, it is estimated that over 100,000 American citizens reside currently in France, making my country one of the top destinations for American expatriates Similarly, close to 120,000 French nationals are registered at the French diplomatic and consular missions in the United States. We probably have to double this figure if we want to take into account the whole French population living on this side of the Atlantic For Florida State alone, it is estimated that 30,000 French citizens reside in the area From one end, State and official relations, to the other end, people to people connections, the relationship between France and the United States enjoys more stability than sometime featured.
Slide 8 - 3. A large field of bilateral and multilateral cooperation 3.1 The friendly relation allows a franck bilateral dialogue: France and the United States share common values and have parallel policies on most political, economic and security issues A new spirit has emerged following Presidential elections both in France (2007) and in the United States The two countries had a different understanding of the situation in Iraq en 2003, when France opposed the use of force at the United Nation Security Council and, consequently, didn’t join the US-led coalition Nevertheless, they have continued to cooperate closely on many issues, most notably in combating terrorism and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and on regional issues in Africa, Lebanon, Syria, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Georgia and Iran France is a close partner with the U.S. in the war on terror. Under the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty, intelligence and security officials monitor and disrupt terrorist groups and actively investigate and prosecute cases of extremism
Slide 9 - 3.2 The combined effort in multilateral organizations France is one of NATO top troop contributors. President Sarkozy annouced last March that our country was reintegrating NATO’s military structures As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, G8 and G20, the European Union, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the WTO, La Francophonie and other multilateral institutions, France has been able to promote common goals with the United States, most recently about reform of the financial institutions and markets France is second only to the United States in terms of troops deployed abroad and is heavily and actively participating in a variety of peacekeeping efforts in Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans alongside the United States in some instances This cooperation is and will be precious in the future in the face of new challenges, like the environment and the fight against poverty and global unbalances.
