Bachar Kouatly - London chess Conference 2018 -
France is the must-watch-country for all chess federations.
GM Bachar Kouatly its president – and vice president of FIDE- has devised an exciting turnaround of the French Chess Federation (FFE) to “a broad direction, a transversal direction, not only a narrow focus on competitive chess. Without it, the federation doesn’t exist, but with only competitive chess we remain weak.”
