The CIEP is undergoing a major transformation. On July 4 Jean-Michel Blanquer, Minister of National Education and Youth of the Republic of France, unveiled the public institution's new name, which has been changed to France Éducation international. This important step marks the first outcome of the endeavour initiated by the Minister several months ago. His goal has been to make the institution the main driving force for educational cooperation encouraged by the Ministry of National Education and Youth, which now has a new educational goal in the international arena.
Educational and linguistic cooperation is becoming a key element of the international policy of France. The aim is to put education at the heart of the public development assistance policy.
