François Hollande: New president on the world stage

Latest update : 2012-05-23

As we head towards key parliamentary elections on June 10th and 17th, the new French president and government are making their first steps. François Hollande went to Berlin, the US and Brussels in the space of a week. A man elected after a campaign focused on domestic topics is now mostly busy with international issues, from the Greek crisis to the war in Afghanistan.

On the set:

  • Mark Deen, journalist, Bloomberg News;
  • Philip Turle, journalist, RFI.
