The President of the Republic His Excellency Paul BIYA and the First Lady Mrs. Chantal BIYA arrived France on Sunday 10 November 2019 to attend the Paris Peace Forum, scheduled to hold from 11 to 13 November 2019.

The invitation of the Head of State to attend the Forum, which comes barely a few weeks after his attending the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment Conference to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, from 9 to 10 October 2019 in Lyon, France, is a clear indication that French authorities are conscious of the primordial role of President Paul BIYA in the preservation of peace and stability in Cameroon and in Africa.

The Presidential Couple landed at the Bouget airport in Paris at about 6 pm and were received on arrival by Cameroon’s Ambassador to France H. E. Alfred NGUINI. They later on left for their hotel of residence in the First District of Paris, where they were greeted by several dignitaries.

The Paris Peace Forum is an occasion for world leaders to reflect on global issues related to peace, climate change, human and social development, etc, in view of identifying solutions that can foster harmonious development strategies.

The opening ceremony will take place on Tuesday 12 November 2019. President Paul BIYA will make the position of Cameroon clear and precise on the matters to be discussed so that we can have a more equitable global distribution of wealth and responsibilities
