TRANSCRIPT: FRENCH AMBASSADOR, M. JACQUES RAPHAEL-LEYGUES (SEQ. 5)
The convention we are signing is a guarantee of the level of training of those doctors who are expected to look after their fellow men. I know, Mr. Minister that the cooperation of both governments will go even further. Abidjan will know the value of the doctors' study period in both countries. It is excellent.
IVORY COAST MINISTER FOR PUBLIC HEALTH, M. HIPPOLYTE AYE (SEQ. 6)
Gentlemen, this apparently modest link that we are adding today to a chain of cultural solidarity, shows a potential that is incredibly rich and concerns the formation of our future doctors, and consequently the quality of their professional activities. This is a real reason for confidence in the future of our health. That is why we have the right to feel a legitimate and deep satisfaction.
