French Offices Abroad

- Back

See also British Offices - German Offices - Italian Offices - Spanish Offices

Turkey - China - Crete - Ethiopia - Morocco

Offices abroad are sometimes dealt with on the detail page of the country where the office is located, sometimes on the page of the country operating the office and sometimes on a separate page such as this. The decision is a pragmatic one, largely based on the number of offices involved.
