Participants hail successful International Relations Officers’ Workshop

Kuala Lumpur: The AFC Member Associations’ International Relations Officers’ Workshop for the East and ASEAN Zones concluded on Friday.

The workshop held at the AFC House was similar to the one in Manama, Bahrain just two weeks prior.

The officers from various MAs, whose main duties are to deal with the AFC and other international organisations, were brought together at this forum so that they could interact with the different AFC departments and its services to further strengthen engagement.

By the end of the workshop, the 26 participants had developed contacts and synergy amongst one another, and had full understanding of the AFC’s structure after sitting through presentations from the AFC MA & International Relations, Legal, Competitions, Technical, Referees and MA Development departments.

Chinese Football Association International Relations Officer Chen Jun said: “The workshop deserves an applause. The event started great and ended perfectly.

“The content of the programme and activities were very interesting and I hope the event would be conducted more frequently by the AFC"

Bolor Bayarsaikhan from the Mongolian Football Federation shared the same sentiments, saying: “As a new International Relations Officer in my MA, this workshop is extremely useful for me.

“I have learnt a lot throughout the workshop and can’t wait to share all this information with my colleagues back home."
