OLS committee meetings with Brand Owners were fruitful as per the feedback received from the vendors and those who attended these meetings. We are sure that a new milestone would be achieved by signing the MoM with all the vendors leading to better hygiene in the market. The discussions in AGM will make a good impact as all member representatives took part in the interactions on every point of the agenda. The governing body meeting followed immediately after AGM which showed the keen willingness of the Governing Body Members to work for the benefit of FAIITA.
As I have been insisting, I once again remind you all to start investing half an hour a day from your routine for FAIITA, I am sure we all will see newer heights in coming future.
