Tuesday, July 11 - The New Face of France and Its Impact on the Future of the European Unio

As one of the founding Fathers of the European Union, Belgium has paid a close attention to the results of the last French election and how this election could impact the future of the European Union.

With Emmanuel Macron assuming the presidency, and his new party En Marche gaining 350 out of 577 seats in the National Assembly, the French people have given Macron more power than any recent president.

Leadership in the West is up for grabs, and Macron is not shying away in the slightest.
Will the mantel of European leadership be assumed by a renewed Franco-German alliance? Is the sweeping victory of En Marche a rebuke of the European Project, or a sign of unity and determination across the continent? Is the embrace of an outsider’s party a rejection of far-right populism? This French government does not hesitate to shake things up.

Louis de Corail, the Consul General of France in Atlanta, and Francois Bresson, Head of Finance Americas of Orange Business Services, will assess the New Face of France and the impact of the new Presidency on the European Union and its relations with the United States.
