competition, guided tour in French at Jatiyo Sangshad Bhaban, francophonie quiz competition, round, etc.  Other events are
as well to be organised by the embassies of countries belonging to francophonie (Canada, Egypt, France, Morocco, Qatar, Switzerland, Vietnam).  Francophonie refers to an
international organisation of French-speaking countries and governments, and also to the
community of French speaking people. Journée internationale
de la francophonie or
The International Day of the Francophonie is observed around the world every year on March 20 to celebrate the love for French language, the cultural diversity and harmony it beckons, as well
to foster the values of peace,
democracy and respect
for human rights.
This day could be compared to the Ekushey February and its
celebrations of the Bangla
language on 21st February. n
