F-ACF extends a warm welcome to His Excellency, Laurent Bili, the new Ambassador of France to the United States, as he begins his appointment in Washington, DC.
Ambassador Bili was France’s Ambassador to China from September 2019 until the current time. A graduate of the French National School of Public Administration, Ambassador Bili began his career in diplomacy with the French Foreign Ministry’s Strategic Affairs and Disarmament Directorate.
Over the years, he has held several positions at the Quai d’Orsay and served as Ambassador to Thailand, Turkey and Brazil, before becoming Director-General for Global Affairs, Culture, Education and International Development at the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and G7/G20 Sous-Sherpa.
We look forward to continuing our close relationship with the French Embassy and collaborating with Ambassador Bili and his team to advance French-American relations.
