U.S. Embassy Hosts Book Discussion Among Local Entrepreneurs

As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the U.S. Embassy hosted a book discussion on the Nouveaux Horizons publication Success in Africa, by Jonathan Berman. Chargée d’affaires Ellen Thorburn delivered welcome remarks and a local school director and entrepreneur moderated the discussion.

The discussion was followed by a Gabonese AWEP success story, in which IVLP alumna Patricia Beang Mba (Vice-President of the AWEP network in Gabon) gave a presentation on her company Metekmavie which makes cookies entirely from local ingredients.
