This year we are very happy that we have some fellow Chins from other countries participating with us,” said Pu Sang Nawl, chairman of DCCF.

It really went well and as a result, we achieved better than we expected,” added Pu Sang Nawl as he thanked all the participants for their respective contributions to the success of the conference.
