Last Saturday the first Asian Platform Meeting for 2016 took place in Bangladesh. At the APM representatives of Asia-Pacific SCI-branches discussed matters concerning the development of SCI in the region. Regional exchange and common projects were some of the topics handled by delegates of 6 SCI-branches and contacts. The meeting went smoothly and was completed in nearly 5 hours. But SCI would not be SCI, if words were not followed by deeds.
