Asia's Who's Who Converge in Bangkok Today

It's that time of the year again! Around 90 thought leaders and change agents in the field of decentralisation and local governance will congregate today in Bangkok at the 5th LOGIN General Assembly (13-15 December 2017).

Two members from each country participated in the EGA that was mandated by the General Assembly of 2016 to take decisions on behalf of the entire membership of LOGIN. read more
