10:00 AM Ivory Coast

As part of the implementation of the Military Programming Act, the Ministry of Defence has embarked on a deep reform under the strategic plan Horizon Côte d’Ivoire 2020. With upgraded capabilities to reflect “better knowledge of the defence policy” & “reinforcement of the link army-nation”, the professionalisation of the Defence forces aims to meet international standards. Affected by these changes are also the defence information and communication agencies (eg. SCA, SECOM-GN at BIPA).
