Grand Duke Henri on the Third Day of the Senegal Visit

On the third, and final, day of the official visit to Senegal, Grand Duke Henri visited the region of Saint-Louis with Prime Minister Mahammed Bon Abdallah Dionne. Romain Schneider, Carole Dieschbourg and Francine Closener were also present for the visit.

Saint-Louis Governor Alioune Aïdara Niang welcomed the entourage, along with the Minister of Hydraulics and Sanitation and Mayor of Saint-Louis, Mansour Faye, and the Minister of Vocational Training, Apprenticeship and Crafts, Mamadou Talla. The trip to the region included a tour of the Saint-Louis Vocational Training Center (Centre de formation professionnelle de Saint-Louis). The Grand Duchy has been an active supporter of vocational training opportunities in Senegal since 2003.

After this, the group visited the Regional Hospital Center (Centre hospitalier régional) of Saint-Louis with the Minister of Health and Social Action, Abdoulaye Diouf Sarr. Luxembourg has supported the hospital as well, particularly through an emergency management system.

To round off the day, the visitors from Luxembourg stopped by the district of Guet-Ndar to view the protective measures that have been implemented to prevent further coastal erosion along the Langue de Barberie.
