ITU Secretary-General an Honorary Citizen of Guadalajara

ITU Secretary-General Dr Hamadoun Touré was made an Honorary Citizen of the City of Guadalajara and awarded the Keys of the City by the Mayor of Guadalajara, Mr Jorge Aristóteles Sandoval, in a ceremony held at the city’s gracious Palacio Municipal at midday today.

Dr Touré praised the warmth, professionalism and indomitable spirit of the people of Guadalajara, which, he said, had all contributed to making PP-10 such a tremendous success. He also complemented the city on its cultural richness, its varied cuisine, and its passionate commitment to ICTs, which have helped it quickly position itself as ‘the Mexican Silicon Valley’.

“Guadalajara will hold a very special place in my heart for the rest of my days,” he said.
