Dr. Christoph Mayer, President of the Austria – Côte d’Ivoire Friendship Society and CEO of Prosper Africa, represented the executive committee of this society which serves as a platform for the promotion of bilateral relations. In his speech, Dr. Mayer transmitted the wishes of the members of the ACFS, highlighting their role in the ongoing strengthening of the economic relations between the two countries and assuring the next official trade mission of the ACFS’ support.
