  • To conclude: We welcome you to Switi Sranan.

    You all know now where on earth it is, what makes us special and how we can cooperate in the near future.

    And of course, I hope that next year, people from Suriname will attend the Fab10 international conference in Barcelona and give their annual update themselves.

    Thank you very much!
