At separate but brief ceremonies, Dr. Chambas expressed appreciation to the Governments of the six countries for the appointments of the Ambassadors, which he said would both reinforce the cooperation between them and ECOWAS as well as further deepen the close ties between their peoples and West Africa.
Furthermore, he expressed the hope that their appointments would further encourage the development of initiatives and the realization of projects aimed at accelerating the pace of integration in West Africa, for the greater well-being of the peoples of the region.Â He assured the Ambassadors of the cooperation of ECOWAS in achieving their missions to Nigeria.
Austria, Argentina and Japan are, for the first time, appointing their Ambassadors as Permanent Representatives to ECOWAS.
