Albany- Namibian Ambassador Hopelong Ipinge got a rare inside look at how pulp gets turned into products his people use thousands of miles away.
"Usually we use the product, but we don't know who is producing it. We've now seen the owner who is producing it. It's amazing. We are grateful," Ipinge.
He's grateful to take a step into a $50 billion business thanks to Albany State.
"Time was limited so we picked out corporate citizens like Procter and Gamble, Merck and Company, and Phoebe Putney Memorial hospital to just see what these companies are like on the inside," says Dr. John Culbreth of ASU.
The trip is part of a mission to help spread South Georgia's knowledge of economic development and corporate business.
"We hope we can measure up to all three prongs of that project so that the ambassador from Namibia can have some resources to use in his country," says Culbreth.
"They want to train our people and empower our people with knowledge and skills, therefore this is a must-see mission," Ipinge says.
ASU is also helping the nation find ways to prevent HIV/AIDS and is developing textbooks for Namibian children.
