April 10, 2006 - As part of our ongoing Africa Initiative, the Oakland Export Assistance Center hosted a West African Buyer Delegation for business matchmaking meetings with several local U.S. companies on Monday, April 10th. The West African delegation was recruited by Cote d'Ivoire Commercial Specialist Marie Paule Ngaleu to attend the ISC West International trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The delegates met with five U.S. companies in the areas of IT security, monitoring, GPS tracking, fire control, etc.
After the matchmaking meetings, the delegates attended an evening mixer at Tanjia Moroccan Restaurant sponsored by Mr. Jimmy Williams of the law firm Burnham Brown (http://www.burnhambrown.com).
