The Annual General Assembly of FIAPF is convened on the 18th of May at Cannes. Mr. T. P. Aggarwal as First Vice President, Mr. L. Suresh as Auditor and Mr. Supran Sen as Executive Committee member will be attending the assembly.
This year’s General Assembly assumes particular significance as apart from the other items, there will be discussions on the key issues and challenges for world-wide film producer community. Among the key issues, the most important is the focus on the Diplomatic Conference at Marrakech (Morocco) on the access to public works by Visually Impaired Persons and persons with print disability. WIPO Conference will be held during the third-fourth week of June.
The earlier three day intensive discussion between WIPO member states on the proposed new international legal instrument on limitations and exceptions for the blind and print impaired failed to reach a clear consensus. Hence at Marrakech, WIPO will take a final call on the matter. Large number of countries including India will participate at the Marrakech conference. As a high profile NGO FIAPF will participate in the conference. FIAPF delegation among others will comprise Mr. T. P. Aggarwal and Mr. Supran Sen.
