Channel Islands build partnerships with France
Guernsey and Jersey's governments have renewed their partnership with the French department Ille-et-Vilaine.
The Memorandum of Understanding facilitates joint working in areas such as education, overseas aid and trade.
The Channel Islands also signed a memorandum with the region of Brittany for the first time.
The President of the regional council of Brittany, Log Chesnais-Girard, said the agreement would strengthen its relationship with the islands.
He said: "While Brexit could have divided us, it has instead helped to bring the Channel Islands closer to Brittany and Normandy.
"I thank our partners in Jersey and Guernsey for having favoured the path of dialogue and cooperation, I am convinced that this path will best defend the interest of all our citizens."
