Mr Abdarhamane Traoret was cordially invited to the head office of HOPE´87 in Vienna on Monday, the 16th of January. He arrived with a slight delay and was welcomed by all the staff of HOPE´87 Vienna. His stay lasted 3 days. Enough time for the scheduled technical meeting with our Assistant General Secretary Maisa Khalil, which helped clarify all technical complexities. Also productive discussions on ongoing and future projects were held with Chief Financial Officer Robert Zehenthofer for the years 2017 and 2018. And finally there was a general training by our General Secretary Robert Ottitsch. It was a very pleasant and mutually productive exchange for all participants. We hope to welcome Mr Traoret soon again. We greatly enjoyed his stay and wish him success in all future HOPE´87 projects.
