Officers attend IPA IEC Conference
Bucharest, located in southeast Romania, is by far the largest Romanian city and became the capital of the country in the middle of the 19th Century. The streets of Bucharest often reflect its nickname, "Little Paris of the East", where historic buildings stand side by side with skyscrapers of glass and metals.
Between September 18 and 25 this year, three members of the Hong Kong Section of the International Police Association (IPA), Chief Inspector John Tse, retired Chief Inspector Eddie Wu and Auxiliary Chief Inspector Aubrey So, attended IPA's International Executive Council (IEC) Conference in Bucharest. Representatives from 58 countries attended the conference to hear the Chairman's report on different commissions to evaluate the activities organised by various IPA sections in the past year, resolve significant issues and discuss future developments of IPA.
The opening ceremony was held on September 19 at the Palace of Parliament. The conference was officially opened by the IPA President and the Hong Kong delegates were welcomed by the President of Romania IPA and Romanian senior officials.
The conference was held in a hotel and accomplished many businesses from the International Commissions. The Hong Kong delegates also took time out to make new friends and renew friendship. One of the highlights of the conference was a workshop to share experience of "Use of IT Platform to enhance communication within IPA and to recruit new members".
The conference concluded with a festive dinner in the hotel, where all participants dressed up in the uniforms of their countries. For the officers, the conference was really a wonderful gathering of international brotherhood of police forces of different countries.
