In an important symbol of our enduring partnership with the people of the Republic of Chad, U.S. Ambassador Geeta Pasi, Acting Director of the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations Ambassador William Moser, and Kassiré Isabelle, Prime Minister’s advisor for International Relations and Cooperation dedicated the new U.S. Embassy in N’Djamena today.

The new Embassy is situated on a 12-acre site southeast of downtown, and includes a Chancery, a Marine Security Guard residence, support buildings and facilities for the Embassy community.

The design architect is Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners of Santa Monica, California, and Page of Arlington, Virginia is the architect of record.  BL Harbert International of Birmingham, Alabama constructed the project.
