Greetings Sir,

May we work together as part of a global team to find the effective solutions that will be required to meet the future global challenges. Business can assist in poverty reduction and I would be most interested to learn more about the 2014-2015 initiatives that you are undertaking in Africa.

Hi Ekanath,

Hope you're very well. I was wondering if you would be interested in connecting with us on twitter? @leadint

We’d love to be able to work together if possible.
