You may be surprised to learn that I know more about Abidjan and IvoryCoast better than you(Though not Ivorian) I do not understand why you are becoming so defensive yet you probably did not play any role in the few setbacks that befell this great country besides this being a photo gallery it is also an international public forum of developmental discussion. Enough of politics.

Please get your politics out of here.
We've already closed 2 Ivory Coast threads because of people like you.
I've already sent 2 private messages to the site Admin to allert him about what you are starting again.

He Re-Created this thread and copied all the photos back, removing all the political trash.

So stop it now.
This is a 'pictures only' thread. Don't start the polical rants again.

If you want to talk Ivory politics, open a new thread, I will be more than glad to debate you there about Ivory coast and your Country.
Thank you.

Very nice, how did you like it there? Do you still have friends over there or do you even plan to return one day? If gets too personal, you can send me a PM
I am asking because I lived there, too.

never mind !!!

I found it.....

ARTICLE DU 22 NOVEMBRE FROM NOTRE VOIE

Financement de la CICF: Arthur Grobri (PDG) : “Les Ivoiriens seront sollicités”
La Compagnie ivoirienne des chemins de fer va bientôt démarrer ses activités. Dans cette interview, le PDG, M. Arthur Grobri, explique tout ce qui est fait autour de cette phase active.

Notre Voie : Monsieur le président, tout le monde attend avec impatience le lancement des activités de la Compagnie ivoirienne des chemins de fer…
Arthur Grobri : Vous avez dû remarquer que des spots passent à la télé invitant les contribuables à faire des suggestions sur le fonctionnement du tramway à Abidjan. Le tramway en Côte d’Ivoire, ce n’est pas un rêve que nous voulons vendre aux Ivoiriens. C’est une réalité qui sera bientôt visible. Le tramway, c’est du nouveau en Côte d’Ivoire. Il faut donc sensibiliser la population abidjanaise sur ce nouveau mode de transport qui va certainement changer ses habitudes de déplacement. Cette politique de sensibilisation, nous l’avons jugée indispensable avant de lancer nos activités.
Nous sommes justement en train de concocter un programme de simulation pour préparer les esprits. C’est l’action de communication entreprise qui a commencé à la télé. Dans quelques jours, des panneaux publicitaires vont suivre, des encartages dans la presse écrite également. Nous avançons méthodiquement parce qu’il s’agit de chemin de fer, un secteur particulièrement délicat à l’instar du transport aérien.
La simulation va certainement causer des désagréments à la population parce que c’est nouveau. Mais, les gens vont finir par s’y habituer. A ce sujet, nous avons saisi les services compétents du District d’Abidjan à l’effet de prendre une part active à la campagne de sensibilisation. Le tramway, c’est pour bientôt ! Nous avons reçu des promesses fermes de financement, mais nous voudrons d’abord compter sur la contribution des Ivoiriens.

N.V. : On évoque justement le financement de la CICF comme un frein…
A.G. : Il y a des privés européens qui sont prêts à entrer dans le capital. Il faut éviter de tendre la main à l’extérieur. Il faut se départir du statut d’éternel assisté alors que, c’est connu, c’est l’Afrique qui soutient l’Europe. La Côte d’Ivoire est un pays porteur de marché ferroviaire, et chaque Ivoirien est amené à jouer sa partition sur ce marché.
Faisons un simple calcul. Abidjan compte en moyenne 6 millions d’habitants. Si les 70% de la population (4,2 millions d’habitants) qui se déplacent tous les jours dépensent en moyenne 2000 FCFA, le volume total du transport s’élève à 8,4 milliards FCFA par jour. En 1 mois, cela fait 252 milliards FCFA, ou encore 3024 milliards FCFA l’année. Or la CICF ne cherche que 655 milliards FCFA auprès des contribuables ivoiriens. Au lieu d’emprunter à l’extérieur et de rembourser environ 9000 milliards FCFA, nous préférons rembourser aux Ivoiriens. La collecte nationale est donc, dans l’esprit, une façon pour la CICF de s’assumer, de jouir d’une liberté d’action au cours des négociations, d’être maître de ses choix sur le marché ferroviaire, d’offrir un salaire décent au personnel. L’Etat, les collectivités locales, les personnes physiques sont donc attendues.
Entrer dans le capital de la CICF, c’est participer en toute sécurité au développement du pays.

N.V. : Où en est-on avec l’étude de faisabilité ?
A.G. : L’étude avance et se situe maintenant à 30%. L’occasion m’est donnée de rappeler aux uns et aux autres, notamment les responsables du développement local, que nous attendons les contributions qui avaient été promises. De toutes les façons, quand le tramway sera en activité, la CICF va verser des redevances à l’image de son rayonnement. Donc, rien n’est perdu.

N.V. : Quelles leçons tirez-vous de la mission que vous avez effectuée récemment auprès de l’Office national des chemins de fer de Rabat ?
A.G. : Le Maroc a fait l’option du développement ferroviaire. Il s’est donné les moyens de réaliser 4 km de voie par mois. La Côte d’Ivoire revendique cent ans de train pour 100 km de voie, soit en moyenne 1 km posé par an. Nous pensons que nous avons pris du retard. Il faut rattraper ce retard. C‘est en cela que l’expérience marocaine peut nous être utile.
Par ailleurs, le Maroc est un pays voisin de l’Europe. Sa population a donc une tradition de train. Le Maroc est également un pays africain. A ce double titre, il était nécessaire pour la CICF de chercher à découvrir l’expérience marocaine. En plus, nous avons appris avec plaisir que l’ONCF est l’une des rares entreprises de chemin de fer à réaliser des bénéfices d’exploitation. Le chiffre d’affaires de l’Office est constitué à 60% de l’exploitation du phosphore. Pour aller d’un point de production à un point d’exportation, le train met peu de temps, et en toute sécurité.
En Côte d’Ivoire, ce ne sont pas les matières premières qui manquent. Grâce au tramway qui, dans sa phase terminale, va couvrir le territoire national, on pourra exporter des produits bord champ, par exemple.

Whoahhh Un tramway a abidjan!! En + c'est le citadis qui est à Bordeaux!!
Geniaaaaaaaaaallllll Ca commence quand?, j'ai toujours pensé qu'une ville comme abidjan pouvait avoir un mode de transport moderne qui irait bien avec sa skyline qui est THE BEST OF AFRICA!!!!!

As long as the dictator is still there and relatively peaceful elections haven´t taken place...this project won´t happen. Investors want secirity before ANYTHING lese.

Moi, je desteste Gbagbo de tout mon coeur, j´suis desolé! Il a détruit a appauvrit la belle Côte d´ivoire, le pays de l´Esperance dans une Afrique troublée. Moi, j´espère qu´il va disparaître bientôt de la scène politique mais je le doute. La Côte d´ivoire a besoin d´un Jerry Rawlings pour faire le ménage dans ce pays mérveilleux avec ses gens aimables.

Jealous Crocodile ofodile, please stay out of this thread. We've closed already 2 Ivory Coast photo galleries because of your rant against President Laurent Gbagbo. I have told you many times, if you want to discuss politics, tell me where to meet you. I am ready to talk about your stinking Nigeria.

This is a 'photo only' thread. Please get your stinky ass out of here.
Thanks for your cooperation.

I respect Ivory Coast, alot of Nigerians respect Ivory Coast. If you have a problem with Matt then you bring that up to him and him only but try not to insult Nigeria because we're moving past this hate. Thanks.

P.S: very nice pics, I feel proud for your country.

Sorry bro, but this Crocodile ofodile guy gets on my nerve. Everytime we have an Ivory Coat photo gallery, he comes in to denigrate the country.
He created the first Ivory pix thread but it was to put the country down with his negative comment on almost every picture... I got the Site Admin to close that thread.

When I created a new Ivory Coast Gallery, he came back in to spew his hatred again. We had to close it and re-start. The Site Admin told him to stay out of the Ivory Coast photo Gallery with his politics... But he couldn't help it. He is back. He's starting his political rant here again.

Toute mes excuses a toi si je t'ai offense.
Merci.

And Matthias would be the first one to protest if someone politicised one of "his threads"! (I do agree with him though regarding Gbagbo)
