The theme of the General Assembly is “Leaving no blind person behind - ten years of the UNCRPD, what we have achieved so far and the next decade of advocacy.”

     Dear all,

the World Blind Union - Asia Pacific Mid-Term Regional General Assembly will be held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia from 9 to 12 September 2018.

     On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to invite you to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia from 9 to 12 September 2018 to participate in this Regional event.

     The General Assembly is an important event of the blindness community in the Asia-Pacific region bringing together representatives from over 20 countries to discuss issues of common concerns. Your participation will certainly contribute a lot in the deliberation on promoting the well being of visually impaired persons.

     Registration fee is very affordable at 350 USD per delegate and 250 USD per participant. Registration fee includes conference bag, program book, lunch and coffee break (9-12 September 2018), Welcome reception (10 September 2018) and Gala dinner (12 September 2018). Participants will be responsible for their own expenses during the assembly, including registration fee, round-trip air fare, hotel accommodation and insurance.

     Deadline for registration is 20 July 2018.

     The general assembly will be held at the Holiday Inn Ulaanbaatar Hotel, located at Sambuu Street 24, Chingeltei District, 5th Horoo, Ulaanbaatar 15141, Mongolia. Phone number: (976) 7014-2424
