Ladies and Gentlemen,
Since its creation, the EMPT of Bingerville is deemed to be an academic institution of excellence and also one of the pillars of sub-regional integration. Indeed over 762 students, 75 are from friendly and brother countries of Africa.
Initially reserved for boys, EMPT was opened to girls in September 2013. I welcome this decision of the President of the Republic, which helps promote the schooling of our daughters, and give the same chance of success all our children.
Today, I am pleased that this military training school already has 92 girls in its workforce.
This ceremony also gives us the opportunity to reward the best students of the institution of the 6th to Terminale. And it is with great pleasure that I have brought gifts for the 75 Excellence Award, to all my dear children, and grants to better equip school.
