On April 23, Ambassador Uyehara praised the work of U.S. company International Bridge, which provided an opportunity to 24 Montenegrin students to participate in their on-line internship program and gain new skills and practical experience to better meet the needs of the local and international labor market. The Ambassador congratulated the students representing Montenegro’s three universities for successfully completing the 10 week-long internship program, which focused on creating call-center software and applications. International Bridge, which is a package shipment company based in Orem Utah that partners with postal systems around the globe to deliver small parcels nearly everywhere, will open an office in Montenegro this summer and offer jobs to the best eight interns. Following the event, the Ambassador took part in witnessing a presentation by another group of students making country reports as part of their practical curriculum of the Polytechnical faculty. The USA presentation focused on architectural masterpieces of American history, including the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and the White House.
