The Alliance Française Awaits You
By Nicole Pierre.
It was a beautiful day in The Hague and the perfect day for an inauguration. Surrounded by the picturesque backdrop of The Hague’s city center, the Alliance Française de la Haye held the official opening ceremony of its new location in the prestigious Berlage Kantoor on Wednesday March 19, 2014. His Excellency Ambassador Pierre Ménat, Martin Beyer Director, Richard Schreurs, President and Marcel Bugter, President of the Federation of Alliance Françaises des Pays Bas, welcomed ambassadors from the various Francophone communities in The Hague, invited guests and sponsors alike. Ambassador Ménat, in his speech, highlighted the linguistic and cultural importance of the Alliance Française as well as the significant ongoing Franco- Dutch connections. The morning ended with a toast and well wishes for the prosperous future of the Alliance Française de La Haye.
