COLEACP was represented by Jeremy Knops, General Delegate; Nursel Gumusboga, Regional Programme Manager; and Isolina Boto, Head of Networks and Alliances.
Composed of representatives of Côte d’Ivoire and representatives of the Embassy of Côte d’Ivoire in Belgium, the delegation from Côte d’Ivoire was led by Kalilou Sylla, Director of Cabinet of the Delegate Ministry in charge of African Integration; H.E. Wautabouna Ouattara, Ambassador, Director General of African Integration; Sandra Isabelle Folquet, Director, Head of the ECOWAS National Office; Liliane Coulibaly, Minister-Counsellor, Embassy of Côte d’Ivoire in Brussels; Waoti Seydou Toure, Commercial Counsellor, Embassy of Côte d’Ivoire in Brussels; and N’vadro Bamba, Counsellor in charge of bilateral issues with Belgium and issues related to ECOWAS, at the Embassy of Côte d’Ivoire in Brussels.
The exchanges were very fruitful and will be followed by technical meetings to collaborate on upscaling food processing, the strengthening sanitary and phytosanitary systems (SPS), market access, and a range of services including training, technical support and B2B.
