• The French presidential election

    May 23 2007, 08:30 - 08:30
    Location: AmCham France

    The decision has been made.  Will France’s relations with the U.S. reflect continuity or change?  What changes if any will come in the political arena, and in economic and commercial affairs?  How will election rhetoric adapt to reality? How will the Franco-American relationship be affected, and what could it mean for U.S. political and commercial interests in France.  Come have a frank, off-the-record discussion with two of the U.S. government’s top analysts of internal French political affairs.  Josiah Rosenblatt, a graduate of ENA who has served at the US Missions to the UN and OSCE as well as in Tel Aviv and in Washington, and Will Owen, with service in Europe, Latin America, North Africa and South Asia, will share with you their analysis of the results.  They will also be eager to hear the analysis of AmCham and French-American Foundation members.  This event, part of the “Meet the U.S. Embassy” series, and a follow-on to Will Owen's excellent presentation in February is a unique opportunity to get expert insight on what lies ahead for the next five years.
