Ghana will be admitted into Organization Internationale de la Francophonie today, 11th October 2018 after being an Associate Member since 2006.

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has arrived at Yerevan, Armenia, to lead the Ghanaian delegation to the 17th Summit of Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, which will take place from 11th to 12th October.

Ghana will then be only one of a handful of countries that enjoy full membership of both the Commonwealth and La Francophonie.

The International Organisation of La Francophonie represents one of the biggest linguistic zones in the world. Its members share more than just a common language. They also share the humanist values promoted by the French language. The French language and its humanist values represent the two cornerstones on which the International Organisation of La Francophonie is based.

The International Organisation of La Francophonie was created in 1970. Its mission is to embody the active solidarity between its 84 member states and governments (58 members and 26 observers), which together represent over one-third of the United Nations’ member states and account for a population of over 900 million people, including 274 million French speakers.

IOF organises political activities and actions of multilateral cooperation that benefit French-speaking populations. Its actions respect cultural and linguistic diversity and serve to promote the French language, peace and sustainable development.

IOF has concluded 33 cooperation agreements with international and regional organisations and has established permanent dialogue between the major international linguistic zones (the English, Portuguese, Spanish, and Arab-speaking zones).
