U.S. Embassy Opens New American Space at University

Opening of New American Space at FHB University

Public Affairs Section (PAS) Abidjan officially opened a new American Space at Côte d’Ivoire’s largest university on Sept. 25 after a year’s worth of planning. The new facility increases the space from the previous smaller university-owned research institute and will provide more modern facilities and better support to staff.  The space will focus on addressing Côte d’Ivoire good governance and democratic challenges in the wake of the civil conflict, a crisis that is still impacting the country in the run-up to elections this year and in 2020.  More than 200 government officials, academics, exchange alumni, and students attended the opening, which was also covered on national television.
