About : 

  • Québec :
    • The Second Summit of Heads of State and Heads of Government of Countries Using French as a Common Language will take place in Québec 2-4 September 1987. The first such summit was held in Paris in 1986.
  • A Francophone Community :
    • The Summit evolved out of the wish, first expressed in the 1960s by President Senghor of Senegal, for a Francophone community along the lines of the Commonwealth. Enthusiasm for this suggestion resulted in the creation of an agency for cultural and technical co-operation in 1970. At the first Summit in 1986, the leaders discussed the issues of the day, including the role of French as a fundamental expression of culture and civilization.
