Ivory Coast ports closure - 14th April
Conversation this morning with our colleagues at Budd Abidjan confirmed that Ivory Coast major ports (Abidjan and San Pedro) remained shut for the time being. Activity has not resumed yet and until the calm will come back, it will not be safe for the people to move to the Ports - Furthermore, no ships have entered the port and in this area, no fighting occurred.
It is hoped that on Monday port operations will probably resume. We shall endeavour to keep you updated.
