On behalf of the Board and members of our network organization, join me in congratulating Mr. Nico De Wet on his appointment as CEO.

He will be supported in this role by Mr. Mohamed Farid as Deputy President. They are both competent and qualified and the board believes they make a great team in forging a greater and sustainable business relationship between Japan and Africa through our organization.

We wish both of them well in moving us forward to the future that we all need for Kakehashi Africa.

Yours Sincerely,

Sati Arthur

Chairperson, Board of Directors
