  • Description

    The Grand Duke of the small European country of Luxembourg arrived in Dakar, the capital of Senegal, for a brief visit on Sunday (23 January).

    SYNOPSIS: The Grand Duke was accompanied on his three-day stay by his wife, and his country's M. Gaston Thorn. The party was greeted by the President of Senegal, Leopold Sedar Senghor. The Duke, M. Thorn and President Senghor are to have talks on possible agreements between the two countries. It's hoped that negotiations for these would cover both the economic and cultural fields.

    If the proposed agreements are completed, they will be new steps for both countries. Co-operation to date has been under the auspices of the Eurafrican association. At an official welcome later in the day, President Senghor praised the Grand Duke and the people of Luxembourg. He said the country is an example of harmonious and energetic development and he mentioned the industrious spirit of the people of Luxembourg.

    In return, the Grand Duke said the rule of President Senghor had ensured a remarkable political and economic stability for Senegal. An extensive itinerary had been arranged for the Grand Duke. It included visits to various theatres and museums as well as to agricultural installations and industrial complexes.
