"It was an excellent opportunity to receive important information about the different matters on disaster relief. Another very important part, I appreciate a lot, was to be connected with the different stakeholders and business operators in a very good way. The organization of the event, in all aspects, was excellent. The model of the program brought best results. I am sure that it will help us as organization in our disaster relief actions."
