On 11 September, RI Secretary General Venus Ilagan was honored to attend a working dinner at the home of Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Korea to the United Nations Oh Joon, alongside 18 distinguished individuals including several Permanent Representatives to the United Nations. The dinner served as an opportunity to discuss how to successfully implement the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), how to better protect and promote the rights of persons with disabilities, and more. Ambassador Oh Joon was recently elected President of the Conference of State Parties to the CRPD for the 2015-2016 term, and RI looks forward to more collaborations in the future.
