African Growth and Opportunity Act, or AGOA Forum 2011, Lusaka, Zambia was an odd destination.  But that is where a Montana delegation of Small and Medium Enterprises, or "SMEs" went in early June, 2011.  The overarching goal of the AGOA Forum is to increase US - Africa trade volume.  Why would SRS Crisafulli participate?  SRS Crisafulli Dredges provide reliable and effective water management solutions to the mining industry in Africa.  Many African countries, including Zambia, are actively mining gold, copper and uranium, all of which need water management tools.  The Crisafulli dredges provide useful options for environmental managers at mines throughout the world.
