  • Description

    PARADES OF FRENCH DRUM MAJORETTES LAUNCHED THIS WEEK'S TRADE FAIR IN THE IVORY COAST CAPITAL OF ABIDJAN. THE THEME OF THE WEEK IS THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN THE JUNIOR CHAMBERS OF TRADE OF ABIDJAN AND OF THE FRENCH TOWN OF LYON.

    THE LYON COMMERCIAL WEEK IN ABIDJAN HAS BEEN ORGANISED JOINTLY BY THE JUNIOR CHAMBERS OF TRADE OF THE TWO CITIES.

    TO START THE CELEBRATIONS THE DRUM MAJORETTES FROM LYON MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS TO THE TOWN HALL WHERE THEY GAVE A DISPLAY IN FRONT OF THE OFFICIAL PARTY WHICH INCLUDED THE PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY, MR. PHILIPPE YACE. THEY WILL GIVE SEVERAL MORE PERFORMANCES THROUGHOUT THE WEEK.

    AT THE OPENING CEREMONY, THE MAYOR OF ABIDJAN, M. KONAN KANGA PRESENTED M. LOUIS PRADEL, THE MAYOR OF LYON, WITH THE KEYS OF THE CITY.

    ALTHOUGH THE FIRST AIM OF THE LYON WEEK IS TO STRENGTHEN COMMERCIAL TIES BETWEEN FRANCE AND THE IVORY COAST, THERE IS A STRONG CULTURAL ELEMENT. THIS INCLUDES PERFORMANCES BOTH BY A COMPANY FROM THE COMEDIE FRANCAISE AND BY A POPULAR GROUP OF YOUNG LYONS SINGERS.
