September. Mr. Stéphane Toulet was appointed the new Consul General of France in Haifa and northern Israel. Mr. Toulet began his position in Haifa in early September 2021 and met with Mayor Dr. Einat Kalisch Rotem the following month.
Haifa has deep and wide ties with France. The Twin Cities Alliance with the city of Marseille was signed in 1962, and collaborations are being held with the city of Paris, the Province of La Bosch-du-Rhône and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.
Relations between the Haifa Municipality and the French Consulate in Haifa have always been stable and fruitful. The Mayor stated that she was confident that during Mr. Toulet's tenure, the relationship would continue to be strong, and that together they will strive to improve the quality of life of the citizens of Haifa and France.
