Scribe has recently added the Republic of Burundi to the governments it represents. In this situation, it is for a specific request lasting only one week, but it may signify further representation on Burundi’s behalf in the future. The specific request came from the Burundi’s embassy in Washington DC, asking Scribe to set up meetings for Alaine Alme Nyamitwe, Minister of External Relations and International Cooperation. The meetings were during the minister’s visit to Washington DC for the week of June 22, 2015. Scribe was tasked to set the meetings with members of Congress, Executive Branch officials, non-governmental organization executives, journalists, academics, and others. The request came from the Embassy in February and was recorded with the forms required by the U.S. Department of Justice during the middle of July.
