  • To bring the program to a higher standard (building on the platform, social media, surveys, database)

For this, it is expected that the FM360° Regional Coordinator is to collaborate with Rabee Kazan, FM360° Regional Coordinator, Rocio García-Gutiérrez Gómez, VdGM exchange officer,  FM360° Regional Coordinators of the other regions and the FM360° Global Coordinator (Viviane Sachs).
