Maxim of the Netherlands A few days ago, he packed his bags to leave the Netherlands and board a spectacular plane that would take him to Ivory Coast† It is the first trip after the pandemic and has had Africa as its destination. The clock struck 9pm when the Air France taking Argentina landed at Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport in Abidjan, the country’s economic capital. There she was received by the local authorities and with her arrival the wardrobe exhibition was kicked off by the wife of Willem van Holland.
Máxima leaves behind some looks that are worth commenting on and that sometimes break her usual praxis in this regard. She traveled with a black jacket that she paired with a blouse Larvin with print animal print, who knows or in honor of the jungle spirit of the African country. A style that she combined with some original Banana Republic loafers, without heels and with studs. Interestingly, it was the same outfit she chose for her UN trip to Bangladesh some time ago. Animal print is definitely not one of her favorite options, even though we’ve seen her wear it on another occasion, but never often.
Máxima Zorreguieta is active like few others and loves the feeling of having made the most of her day. That is why he got up very early last Monday to make the best use of the time. The first thing he did after a breakfast to regain his strength was to participate in the Africa CEO Forum 2022 in Abidjan. It was not his only task, as he also spoke with UN development partners such as the African Development Bank, the French Development Agency, UN-Women, the World Food Program or the World Bank. In short, check whether the UN roadmap for the Ivorians is being implemented. Several activities Guillermo’s partner chose one for blue maxi shirt, with a comfortable navy blue skirt, with print and other moccasinsbut this time in suede and with a gold buckle.
Already this Wednesday, Máxima has again resorted to a print, but this time floral and very spring, with warm colors as protagonists. And this is the first time he’s given up loafers for stilettos. A bet that partially breaks the style pattern we are used to.
From Ivory CoastMáxima of the Netherlands sets course for Senegal† There he will meet the president, as well as Macky Sall; including the Minister of Finance and Budget and the Minister of Economy, Planning and Cooperation. You will also have the opportunity to talk with senior leaders from the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO) to see the elements of regional financial sector reform.
These two visits have economic themes as a common thread, but Máxima also does not lose sight of other objectives, such as financing SMEs, inclusive financial technology, the digital financial inclusion of women and agricultural finance, as well as meeting local entrepreneurs. Since Máxima de Holanda holds the position of United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA), Africa has become one of the countries for which more efforts have been made. Has already visited: Egypt in 2010; Ethiopia in 2013 and 2019; Kenya in 2010, as well as Liberia; Mali a year later, in 2011; Nigeria in 2012 and 2017; Rwanda in 2010; Senegal in 2011; Tanzania in 2010 and 2013 and South Africa in 2011.
It should be noted that Máxima’s work seems to be paying off, as the economic situation of the inhabitants improves significantly. In Côte d’Ivoire, 41% of adults have a bank account, an increase of 34% from 2014 thanks to the work of the National Strategy for Financial Inclusion. In Senegal, meanwhile, 42% of adults have a bank account, 15% more than in 2014, according to the portal pride†
Very attentive to the outfit that Máxima chose for her visit to a market in Pikine, a poor suburb of the Senegalese capital Dakar. It seemed like another.
In his daily life, he usually does not use prints, but the truth is that for this trip to Africa, he packed several in the suitcase.
And from an exotic look to a more formal one: lace top and pencil skirt set with pumps.
Máxima said goodbye to the African country with a spring style consisting of a yellow dress with a floral print and a belt with a buckle with floral decoration. As footwear, wedge sandals with heels.
