It was a privilege to have worked with Sigma Orionis. It constituted a very important path in our political and technical engagement with Africa. It helped maximize our relationship with African countries and the African Union Commission taking advantage of all the knowledge and trust that Sigma Orionis has remarkably built with African partners. It allowed us not only to make our work more efficient but to make people aware of the importance to work through the pioneering multistakeholder model, which is very stimulating and constitutes one step further a stronger Europe & Africa Partnership. And all my admiration for the outstanding team I had the privilege to work with: Karine and Laura.
