On Monday 28 August, Thierry Hernandez managing director of CAPYRO® takes part in the Ambassadors week.

Organised by the European Minister of foreign affairs, the goal of this half-day is to establish a direct dialogue between entrepreneurs and ambassadors.  Businesses can introduce their projects abroad, identify growth opportunities or just simply discuss the challenges involved in certain markets.   In our case, we became friendly with Malta.
