“Francophonie” is the quality of speaking French. The term designates the ensemble of people, organisations and governments that share the use of French on a daily basis or/and as administrative language, teaching language or chosen language.
French Culture does not stop to France. It spreads its wings to many French-speaking countries all around the planet. Our French World pavilion gives you the opportunity to discover how French heritage mixed with other cultures, and how diverse are the landscapes of countries of “Francophonie”.
Various Regions of France and French-speaking countries will be represented by French groups, clubs, associations and volunteers willing to share their knowledge with you. This year Our French World will be grouped with the Créole Village under two big domes to be able to have a vibe of the diversity of the French Speaking countries.
Mauritius will be represented by Air Mauritius.
