The French Consulate in Atlanta, the State of Georgia, and the City of Atlanta are preparing to reinforce ties between France and the American Southeast through a series of events and lectures in the fields of science, economics, the arts, and humanitarian aid to take place in Atlanta from November 29 to December 12, 2010.
The partnership called “France-Atlanta: Together Towards Innovation” builds on a relationship that already exists between Atlanta and the Lorraine region and Atlanta and the City of Toulouse. Georgia Tech has had a campus in the city of Metz, capital of Lorraine, for the past 20 years, while Atlanta and Toulouse have been sister cities since 1974. Large delegations from Lorraine and from Toulouse are expected to attend.
