We will retain the excellent organization both materially and scientifically

The excellent hospitality and concern for the welfare of the guests was outstanding.

The scientific level of the congress was very good and the two conference rooms attracted many participants.

The regional assembly (only Libya was absent) was marked by a strong desire to continue together despite the small number of member countries; while agreeing to consider possible adjustments to the Regional Working Group. We must emphasize the cordiality between the different national delegates of the participating countries.
