Message from WCC-Asia Pacific Region

It is pleasure to accept the gracious invitation from FHAN which is organizing WCC-APR General Assembly in Kathmandu in cooperation with the Government of Nepal. This is a reflection of sensitivity towards art, craft and culture on the one hand and building strong fraternity between artisan communities on the other. More importantly is the exchange of knowledge and technology to improve the craft culture globally.
I encourage APR members, artisans and experts to participate in the event and get introduced to the Nepalese culture, people, artisans, arts, historical sites and breathtaking natural scenery.
Looking forward to meeting you in Kathmandu.

Dr.Ghada Hijjawi-Qaddumi
President, WCC-Asia Pacific Region (2013-2020)
