The Annual Conference of Workability Asia held at the Park Plaza Bengaluru Hotel in Bangalore, India in 25th - 27th August 2016 was completed very successfully.
470 participants including 35 delegates from 9 countries and areas outside India gathered and discussed how to promote "Empowerment through Employment of People with Disabilities".
Successful experiences and innovative models to give more opportunities for persons with disabilities were presented in every session.
Great success of the event was owed to a tremendous effort of the excellent Disability NGOs Alliance Team in India in preparing such a nice conference.
Their preparation was perfect in terms of program, information, logistics, accessibility and hospitality indeed.
On behalf of members and the Board of Workability Asia I would give our sincere appreciation for them.

The Annual General Meeting of Workability Asia was held on 26th August 2016 at the Park Plaza Bengaluru Hotel.
Most important agenda was the election of the Board of Directors.
As the result of the vote, Mr. Suporntum Mongkolsawadi from Thailand was elected for his second three year term.
Ms. Shamim Ferdous from Bangladesh was elected for her first three year term and Mr. Dipesh Sutariya was also elected for his first three year term.
It is great to have Directors from South Asia first time in the history of Workability Asia.
