Mr. Sahmani the Managing Director of Tose`e Ta`avon Bank along with Mr. Qaed the head of International Division of T.T. Bank will attend the 11th ICA-AP Regional Assembly and 8th Co-operative Forum which will be held in Indonesia from 15 September until 20 September 2014.
The biennial Regional Assembly, represented by all members directly, is the highest authority of the ICA-Asia and Pacific. The Regional Assembly is a central policy making and representative body that brings together all members and provides them a platform to discuss multiple issues concerning development and growth of co-operatives as well as the opportunity to network and form bilateral and multilateral alliances for mutual benefit. The Regional Assembly plays a vital role in strengthening the democratic governance process of cooperatives by building consensus on issues and passes the agenda after discussion and to the satisfaction of all members. The first Regional Assembly was held in 1995 in New Delhi, India and the great tradition is in place since then. The ICA-AP member base has grown many folds since the first meeting and now has delegates from 80 member co-operatives across 25 countries representing more than 500 million individual members and their communities. The Regional Assembly encompasses the Co-op Forum and various events organized by the regional committees.
The joint opening of the Regional Assembly and the Co-operative Forum will be held on 18 September 2014 at the Bali International Convention Centre ( BICC), Nusa Dua in Bali, Indonesia.
