Like all Alliances Françaises around the world, the network  of Alliance Françaises in India and Nepal are charged with the triple mission of spreading French language, Francophone cultures and fostering friendly relations between the subcontinent and France. Given the diversity of this region, each Alliance works in different ways and initiates different programs to cater to local needs and interests. Twice a year, the AF Network in India and Nepal meets at a different location to take stock of these initiatives and to mutually chalk out a common way forward in line with their overall mission.

For 2016, the first meeting was held in Alliance Française de Trivandrum from April 6 to April 8. The present meeting was the first time that AF Trivandrum hosted the event. The meeting was held in the presence of Bertrand Commelin (newly appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Fondation Alliance Française), Philippe Janvier Kamiyama (Consul General of France in Pondichery) and Bertrand de Hartingh (Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy in India and Director of Institut Français in Delhi). The meeting provided an ideal opportunity for Mr. Commelin’s first official visit to India.
