I am happy to announce our first meet-up. This being a kick-off meeting of our group, the program will be somewhat open. The main objective is to get to know each other and discuss activities that we as the Friends-of-Asia would like to explore together. There are plenty of interesting themes we can adopt for future meet-ups such as - sharing insights and exchanging experiences on travel, cuisine, customs & traditions, festivals etc. across the different Asian countries. I will table some thoughts and during this meeting, all of us can discuss and firm-up specific approach and ideas for the future meet-ups. Look forward to meeting you.
