Information Section

The Information Section of the United States Embassy in Abidjan Cote d’Ivoire is charged with providing comprehensive, relevant, and timely information on American foreign policy and relevant global events to Ivoirians.  This effort to engage and inform is achieved through myriad outreach initiatives that span the spectrum from face to face outreach to electronic information distribution.  Yet, each endeavor remains grounded in the strong belief that access to information is the lifeblood of democratic societies and mutual understanding in our foreign relations.
