On June 3, 2016, Ambatovy and Newrest inaugurated the new PoC site in Tamatave. Ambatovy built some of the buildings and provided vehicles and materials to the Malagasy army. For Newrest’s part, we provided a camp to house the soldiers.
The President of the Republic of Madagascar, Hery Rajaonarimampianina, took part in the day’s event, and was given a tour of Newrest’s donated facility by Alexandre Lelièvre, the General Director of Newrest in Madagascar.
