OIF ministers to discuss reform proposals next month

Paris- France (PANA) -- The International Organisation of the Francophonie (OIF) has scheduled a ministerial conference for 22- 23 November in Antananarivo, Madagascar to discuss proposals for reform in the organisation, reliable sources disclosed here Monday.
Representatives of the 53 Heads of State and Government of the organisation had approved the project, prepared by the Organisation's Secretary-General, Abdou Diouf, the sources said.
But those representatives who met on 12 October in Paris as part of the Permanent Council of the Francophonie (CPF) made some recommendations to fine tone the reform project.
The reform is expected to facilitate "greater harmony" between the OIF and the inter-governmental Agency of the Francophonie (AIF), the sources said.
It is also expected to ensure more efficiency and greater complementarity between the various operators of the Francophonie.
The last summit of the Francophonie, held in November 2004 in Burkina Faso, mandated to the Secretary-General to initiate the restructuring of the organisation.
