Message from the President of the UNWG


Dear Members,

Our January Coffee Morning was jointly hosted by the distinguished Missions of India and Bhutan. Dr. Shalini Chander, spouse of the Permanent Representative of India, gave us the opportunity to navigate through the colorful culture of Incredible India, where we were able to travel to different places to have a glimpse of what this beautiful country can offer. The versified rich typical food offered by our two generous hostesses, Dr. Shalini Chander and Mrs. Kesang Singye, spouse of the Permanent Representative of Bhutan, was magnificent. I take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks and high appreciation to both ladies.

For our February Coffee Morning, we were enchanted by the marvelous dances given by the ladies of the mission of Tajikistan. Thanks to Mrs. Zarina Sharifova, spouse of the Permanent Representative of Tajikistan for giving us the opportunity to see how charming this country is.

The Annual Luncheon which took place on January 18 at the Intercontinental Hotel was a great success. We were honored to listen to a speech by our guest of honor, Madam Michelle Bachelet, High Commissioner for Human Rights and previous President of Chile. A big thank you goes to our Public Relations Officer, Niloufar Rafi Kan Bouabid.

Once again our talented artists were generous enough to display their outstanding pieces of art at the Art Exhibition which was held at WIPO 13-22 February. I thank Manila for the hard work she did in order for us to enjoy it.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the 2019 Annual General Assembly which will take place in the United Nations on April 29 in Room XXII. We will start at 14:00 sharp. You are kindly expected to be there by 13:30. Looking forward to seeing you all.

Nehad Sukayri
