Having presented my credentials to His Majesty the King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa yesterday, I am pleased, for my first public address, to address you via the Embassy’s website and Facebook account.
It is a pleasure and a great honor to have taken up my duties as French Ambassador to Bahrain. As in my previous missions (my curriculum vitae is online on this website) but for the first time as head of diplomatic mission, my ambition is to serve the interests of France and the French community.
I greet all the members of this community who, on a daily basis, show their attachment to this country but do not forget France, which needs all of them to carry its values, its colors, its expertise and its interests.
Current Ambassador : Mr. Jérôme Cauchard, appointed on September 19, 2019
