Midrand, 30th June 2010 – Nearly 1,000 people – including football revelers, policy makers, school children, captains of industry and government officials have in the past two weeks made their way to the NEPAD Agency exhibition at the 2010 FIFA World Cup International Football Village at the Birchwood Hotel near the OR Tambo International Airport. One such visitor included none other than the German Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development Mr. Dirk Niebel (see photo) who recently visited the NEPAD stand.

Reports from staff at the NEPAD Agency stand indicate that most people who visited the exhibition kept asking for information on how to partner with the NEPAD Agency and also for examples on what NEPAD was doing.

Special thanks to all the staff from the various directorates who managed to make the time to man the stand whilst also assisting in collecting recent information on the work that we are all doing.
