Asian Asbestos Conference 2009
Break-out Session 2: Building the Asian Ban Asbestos Network
Moderator: Yeyong Choi
During this session, delegates debated the
way forward. In discussions and in conversations
which took place within smaller
subregional groups, a consensus emerged
on campaign themes and strategies. Available
regional resources were compared
with those required to achieve specified
goals and suggestions were made on how
to bridge the gaps identified. While full
minutes of these discussions have been
made available to the members of the Asian
Ban Asbestos Network (A-BAN), only
AAC 2009 delegates are privy to the decisions
taken during this session.
