    Background: The Canadian External Affairs Minister, Allan MacEachen, visited the National Library of the Ivory Coast on Monday (21 April) during a visit to the country.

    The library -- opened late in 1974 -- was built with Canadian financial and technical assistance.

    The day before, Mr. MacEachen had talks with President Felix Houphouet-Boigny in the Head of State's village, Yamoussokro, about 260 km (161 miles) north of Abidjan. They discussed reforms of the world monetary system, bilateral relations and African problems.

    The Canadian Minister -- on his first trip to the area -- had earlier visited Upper Volta and was scheduled to travel on to Nigeria and Ghana.
