Signature of a cooperation protocol with France
On Wednesday 4 April in the Quai d’Orsay, Alain Juppé, Minister of Foreign Affairs, signed a protocol of cooperation between France and the Sovereign Order of Malta, represented by the Grand Chancellor, Jean-Pierre Mazery, and the President of the Ordre de Malte France, Thierry de Beaumont-Beynac.
This cooperation protocol, based on the Oeuvres Hospitalières Françaises de l’Ordre de Malte experience in emergency medical services, renews and strengthens the already firm bonds that have existed since 1928 between France and the Order.
These bonds are underpinned by joint ventures involving the protection of individuals, public health and medical and social assistance and training.
The protocol, that also establishes an annual meeting between representatives of the Order of Malta and those of the French public administration, is a concrete demonstration of France’s interest, through hospital care, in the Order’s humanitarian activities and in developing cooperation in this sector.
