    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Opening Keynote Speech at the Summit

    Hello, Everyone.It is a real pleasure for me to be with you today—as Prime Minister of Canada, but especially as a proud Francophone.  I would like to thank the President of the Republic of Madagascar and the Malagasy people for their warm welcome. I would also like to mention that the President studied at a Canadian university, the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. So his background is an indication of the wide variety of ties that are being formed between the countries and citizens of the Francophone world.
