The Gathering was held at the Bayview Hotel, Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia from 17 till 21 November 2022. I would like to congratulate FOFSAG Malaysia (NSGF Malaysia) for hosting this 16th ISGF ASPAC Gathering with the theme “Leadership through Fellowship”.
This Gathering was supposed to be held in year 2021 but was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic. There were 160 delegates and participants from AUSTRALIA, BANGLADESH, INDIA, INDONESIA, SOUTH KOREA, MALAYSIA, MALDIVES, NEPAL, SINGAPORE, SRI LANKA and TUNISIA. Sadly, NEW ZEALAND, PAKISTAN, and PHILLIPINES did not manage to attend. The organizer was so thrilled that our Tunisian brothers and sisters came all the way from Tunisia to be at this gathering in fellowship.
Penang, Malaysia will be the place where the 16th AsPac Regional Gathering will take place. The Host NSGF Malaysia together with the AsPac Regional Committee are busy to make this an unforgettable event. A short glimpse of Penang click here
