WHERE: Phnom Penh Hotel, Phnom Penh
WHY: 2018 is the final year of the current National Disability Strategic Plan (NDSP) and it is timely and universally relevant to develop the new Strategic Plan with its main objective to improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities while the theme of this year’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities is ‘empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality’.
