We have been witness to our very existence being placed at risk, as the death and destruction of the Virus has devastated the entire world. We seem powerless to act, as we waited with bated breath for the development of Vaccines, and innovative therapies. Our very existence was now being placed in doubt”.
”Migrants are instruments of economic activity…I am The perfect example, presently working with 3 companies; Susan Gong, who originally came from Taiwan, and her Altec Global Capital team; Michael Shribman and the APS group , who came to Canada, from Europe and Israel, now having developed one of the best Startup Visa programs; and Rafik Salib, a developer from Egypt and Germany If there is one thing we have learned in this year, of worldwide devastation.
