U.S.-MEPI Closing Ceremony

Ambassador Desrocher attended the closing ceremony for the The U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI)-funded Entrepreneurship, Leadership, and Innovation Program, which has given entrepreneurship training to 1,900 young Algerians in 21 wilayas over the last two years. He was very impressed by these young men and women who have developed ambitious business plans in technology, agriculture, and other fields. 18 of these projects have already become startup enterprises!
