From Cordoba and to the world
OTTAA Project holders will travel to Dubai. There will be the conference where the guidelines to be implemented next year at Expo 2020 will begin. For this meeting, Carlos and Hector Costa asked Manuel Calvo, Secretary of Communications and Connectivity of the province, for a flag of Cordoba. The order has two fundamental reasons. On the one hand, show the world and l pride they feel for being Cordoba. And, on the other hand, make clear the gratitude to the provincial government, for the accompaniment they received in these years.
“Along this way, we always received the support of the province: we had several funding, which were crucial to obtaining resources. And when, 20 days ago, we were robbed and taken absolutely everything and we were about to close the company. The first to contact for officials of the province. That is why we want to tell the world that we are proud to be Cordoba,” said Carlos Costa.
