Let's talk about France!No. 23 April 2007
On 2 April, the France 24 information TV station launched its programmes in an Arabic version intended for countries in the Maghreb and the Middle East and for Arabic-speaking communities in Europe. A summary of world news is proposed daily for four hours in classical Arabic. Programming includes a 10-minute live news bulletin half-hourly, as well as interviews, debates and programmes on the economy, culture, sports, etc.
The Louvre in Abu Dhabi project is to be implemented by an International Agency of French Museums which is to be created shortly and to represent several other national French museums.
In order to convey the universal and humanist message intended by both countries, while highlighting the classical period, the museography will be open to all visual arts, to all civilisations and to all periods, including contemporary art.
Thanks to its partnership with Abu Dhabi, the Louvre project will enable France to meet the challenge of cultural globalisation.
