It gives me great pleasure to address this distinguished gathering of business meeting participants. Other than working on business matters such events are important platforms for deepening mutual engagement and interaction, and providing an opportunity to think creatively about ways to develop the potential of our relationship.
I would like to congratulate our Kashmir Branch and especially Mrs. Roshan Ara for giving us an opportunity to experience most gorgeous Indian Paradise on earth. It is, we women who taken up the challenge to support our brothers and sisters in Kashmir which is one of our initiative towards National Integration and being a pioneer NGO working for empowerment of women, we feel it is a matter of honour for us to hold the conference here. This has been possible only with the dedicated support of our member Ms. Roshan Ara. I am really proud and honored with the strength of our AIWC. I would also like to thank Srinagar University for their extended support and hospitality for the success of our meet.
