"When I arrived in Belgium, I discovered a whole new world."

cyril wembe

Name: Cyril Wembe

Nationality: Cameroonian

Profession: Engineer

Domain: New vaccine technologies


Cyril Wembe left Yaoundé, the capital of Cameroon, to work in Belgium. He now relishes working for a multinational company bringing together more than 50 nationalities. For him, the cooperation between team members from around the globe is the company's greatest asset.


What's more, Brussels, Belgium's capital – home to a population of at least 184 nationalities, speaking 104 languages – is Europe's most cosmopolitan city and the second most cosmopolitan in the world.


Belgium's geographical location, its multicultural population and its history as a crossroads and a trading hub through the centuries have all contributed to the country's very international character.

Cyril's dream was always to improve the lives of others. Every year in Cameroon, many people fall ill with malaria, and so there was nothing he wanted more than to get involved, in one way or another, in efforts to eradicate this disease. By coming to Belgium, he has managed to make that ambition a reality.
