    Background: Liberia's President William Tolbert -- on a ten-day official visit to Ivory Coast -- received the freedom of the city of Abidjan (the capital) on Thursday (13 March).

    Mr. Tolbert later toured the port and industries in and around Abidjan.

    At a state banquet the night before, his host, President Felix Houphouet-Boigny, called on African countries to develop trade among themselves and with the European Common Market.

    He said: "This twin step will bring us together and incline us to consolidate our relations with Europe." The two leaders later discussed the possibility of setting up an economic community of West African states.

    In reply, President Tolbert invited M. Houphouet-Boigny to visit Liberia and revealed that the countries would soon sign a co-operation agreement on transport.
