His Excellency Daniel Kablan Duncan, Prime Minister of the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire, along with a delegation of key Ministers of Government and business leaders visited Atlanta to honor Ambassador Andrew Young.

Prime Minister Duncan presented Ambassador Young with the Commandeur de L’Ordre, Cote d’Ivoire’s highest civilian honor, during the launch of the International University of Grand-Bassam Foundation at the InterContinental Hotel Buckhead.

The IUGB Foundation is a tax-exempt organization that provides scholarships to bright, but needy students in Cote d’Ivoire, West Africa, giving them the opportunity to gain educational and professional skills necessary to become global citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
