Why Surinam?

Surinam is a beautiful tropical country with a small and very diverse population. As global prices for Gold and Oil are dropping, the local economy is suffering a crisis and businesses are struggling to find new ways to survive. We think that introducing Appreciative Inquiry will help local businesses find what will make them prosper again.
