  • Description

    M. COULIBALY, PRESIDENT OF THE IVORY COAST ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL, WHO ARRIVED IN BRITAIN FOR A TWO-WEEK OFFICIAL INFORMATION TOUR ON MONDAY, VISITED LLOYD'S OF LONDON THIS MORNING (WEDNESDAY). LATER HE WENT ON TO PAY A COURTESY CALL AT THE BOARD OF TRADE.

    M. COULIBALY WAS ACCOMPANIED ON HIS TOUR BY THE THREE MEMBERS OF HIS DELEGATION: M. LANCINA KONATE, MEMBER OF THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL; M. KACOU ANZOUAN, ADMINISTRATIVE DIRECTOR TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL; AND M. GEORGE ADOM, PROTOCOL OFFICER OF THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL.

    AT LLOYD'S M. COULIBALY SAW IN ACTION SOME OF THE 6,000 UNDERWRITERS WHO TRANSACT INSURANCE FOR THEIR OWN ACCOUNT AND IN COMPETITION WITH EACH OTHER.

    LLOYD'S, BEGUN OVER 250 YEARS, DOES NOT ITSELF TRANSACT INSURANCE BUT PROVIDES THE PREMISES AND OTHER FACILITIES TO ALLOW ITS MEMBERS TO CARRY ON BUSINESS. THE ANNUAL PREMIUM INCOME OF LLOYD'S MARKET IS OVER GBP 358,000,000 STERLING AND REPRESENTS ALL CLASSES OF INSURANCE OTHER THAN LONG TERM LIFE ASSURANCE. MORE THAN HALF THIS BUSINESS COMES FROM OUTSIDE THE UNITED KINGDOM.

    LATER IN THE AFTERNOON M. COULIBALY WENT TO THE OFFICES OF THE BOARD OF TRADE. THERE HE WAS MET BY LORD WALSTON, PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF TRADE.

    M. COULIBALY WILL REMAIN IN LONDON FOR THE REST OF THIS WEEK, DURING WHICH HE IS EXPECTED TO MEET FOREIGN OFFICE AND ECONOMIC AFFAIR'S OFFICIALS, AND TO GO ON SIGHTSEEING TOURS OF THE CITY. NEXT MONDAY HE IS DUE TO SET OFF ON A TOUR OF CENTRAL ENGLAND. HE RETURNS TO LONDON ON 17 MARCH FOR FURTHER TALKS WITH GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS BEFORE RETURNING HOME.
