EVENT: Anniversary of the Elysée Treaty

As we told you in our previous blog post, the Elysée Treaty was signed 52 years ago on January, 22, 1963. It signaled he start of a new partnership and friendship between France and Germany and,over the last 50 years, has become the engine that drives the European Union. It was instrumental in making the EU the success that it is today.

Now, obviously this deserves a celebration, and, when you’re partnered with the French as well as we are it’s definitely cause for celebration! So we are doing exactly that and obviously you’re invited along so make sure you get the details in your diary!
