Côte d'Ivoire Grand Chapitre

Abidjan, October 31 to November 2, 2013

The Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire was the venue for the Bailliage’s 2013 Grand Chapitre. In this stunning setting, the Induction Ceremony took place for 37 new members in the presence of prestigious guests.

Maître Benoît Fragnière, Member of the Conseil d’Administration from Switzerland, had been appointed by President Yam Attalah to preside over the induction of the new members. He was assisted by Maître Serge Roux, Bailli Délégué. Most of the inductees were Ivorian, but they also included French, Lebanese and Swiss members, giving one, Mr Boucharara, the chance to make the most of a business trip in Abidjan to take part in the ceremony.

One hundred and twenty guests took part in a dinner with a focus on camaraderie and sharing. The brigade, led by Chef Pascal Favier, dazzled us with the wonderful choreography of each course. 
Prestigious guests had graciously accepted Maître Serge Roux’s invitation, so we were honoured by the presence of the Turkish Ambassador to Côte d'Ivoire, his counterpart from the State of Palestine, The Minister of Tourism for Côte d’Ivoire, General Clément Bollé, former general of the Force Licorne, and Mr Henri Weyckmans, Chairman of the Kingdom of Belgium’s Chamber of Commerce.

A large number of economic actors and presidential advisors, as well as former members of the Chaîne (Mr Rosenberg – former MD of SONITRA), attended the ceremony, which brought to a glorious end a busy year for the Côte d’Ivoire Bailliage.
