In his welcoming remarks, Ambassador Hoza said: “Throughout my travels in Cameroon, I have met young people who have these dreams. Who are ready to start a venture of their own — to contribute to the economic development of Cameroon and shape its destiny. That’s the essence of entrepreneurship… So, to the designers, artists and innovators here today: This is your week! I hope you will be inspired, as I am, by the extraordinary talent, here in Cameroon, and the endless possibilities that they represent in moving your country’s vision forward.
