Presidents Message On Kaivalam

President’s Message


Further to the election of China to host the Presidency of the World Crafts Council at the General Assembly held during Kaivalam in Chennai in October 2012, I am very happy to inform that Mr. Wang Shan, Vice President & General Secretary of the China Arts and Crafts Association will shortly take over as the President of the WCC-AISBL, for the next four-year term, 2013-2016.  Simultaneously, Ms.  Jing Chen would take over as the Secretary General of the new entity WCC-AISBL for the same period.

Our organization has now been formally registered in Belgium as an international organization, and the new entity will henceforth be known as World Crafts Council AISBL, or WCC-AISBL.

I would like to thank each and every member of the Regional Boards of the World Crafts Council and all the individual members of World Crafts Council for their unstinted support which greatly helped me to efficiently perform my duty as President of this great organization.

I wish the new team all the very best in continuing our task of elevating the status of crafts and craftspersons all over the world.
