On the 13th of April, 2016, the United Kingdom’s Minister of International Development (DFID), Nick Hurd accompanied by other officials of the UK’s DFID, visited Co-Creation Hub (CcHUB). The purpose of the visit was to learn more about the innovative technology solutions within the hub and also look at possible room for collaboration in the nearest future.
