The City of Dallas in collaboration with the World Affairs Council hosted the Inauguration of the New Honorary Consul of Cote d’Ivoire, the Honorable Dr. Hyacinthe Ndri. His Excellency, Daouda Diabate, the Ambassador of Cote d’Ivoire to the United States, was special guest at the event to formally recognize the Honorary Consul. The Ambassador also presented the flag of Cote d’Ivoire to Honorable Erik Wilson, Deputy Mayor ProTem, who received the flag on behalf of the City of Dallas.
As Honorary Consul for Cote d’Ivoire to Texas and surrounding States, Dr. Ndri’s primary focus will be not only to actively reinforce bilateral relations in culture, trade, economy, and science between the City of Dallas, surrounding Cities and States with Cote d’Ivoire, but also be a conduit for change for his fellow country men and women living in this region.
