RLP’s Premier Dreyer welcomed French Ambassador Delattre


Rhineland-Palatinate has had intensive cooperation with France for a long time. The partnership with Burgundy has existed since 1962 – even longer than the Élysée Treaty. Rhineland-Palatinate was the first German state to enter into such a contractual connection with a French region. Today it has been expanded to include the Franche-Comté sub-region, to which the Premier Malu Dreyer travelled at the beginning of October 2023.

In addition to current European policy issues, the discussion between Ambassador François Delattre and Premier Dreyer focused on expanding the close and good relations between Rhineland-Palatinate and France, including with a view to cross-border mobility in rail transport and regional energy concepts.

“I am particularly pleased that there are numerous collaborations in the areas of mobility, education, science, environment and culture in Rhineland-Palatinate, in which a lively exchange is maintained. Language acquisition and school partnerships are an important prerequisite for personal encounters and getting to know each other. This is the basis for trust and peaceful coexistence. “That’s why a network event for school partnerships is being planned in Trier next spring,” said Premier Dreyer as per the statement in its original German version linked below.

Ambassador François Delattre took office in September 2022. The French Consul General Ilde Gorguet also took part in the meeting with Premier Malu Dreyer.
