Guy KASSA KOUMBA (Director of External Relations) led the Shell Gabon delegation, which also included Sylvie AVIKA (Head of Social Investment) and Charles IGOHO (Government Relations Officer). By making this gift, the company renewed its pledge of support to the education and research sector at university level.
The USTM Secretary-General presided over the ceremony, and the presence of the university management, lecturers and researchers, students, local authority representatives, the press and audio-visual media raised the profile of the occasion.
The representative of the lecturers welcomed those present. Then it was the turn of Science Faculty dean, Professor Michel MBINA MOUNGUENGUI, to give his keynote address.
He began by thanking Shell Gabon, on behalf of the USTM Decanal Council, for its praiseworthy gesture at a time of economic recession.
