Dharamshala: As informed by the Finance Kalon during the last session of the 13th Assembly of Tibetan Peoples Deputy held this March, the Finance Department of the Central Tibetan Administration is going to hold a conference of Tibetan sweater sellers in India in August 2006.

The venue for the conference is Golden Huts Resort on the Delhi-Jaipur highway.

The main objective of the conference is to work out on forming an association for all the Tibetan sweater sellers in India.

The sweater selling business has been a main source of income for a large section of the Tibetan people in India.

The conference thus will decide whether or not to form an association of Tibetan sweater sellers, which will help them to providing updated services on business opportunities, taxation laws and various other issues that affect them directly or indirectly.

Besides, it will give them a platform for the Tibetan sweater sellers to share their views and concerns.

In this connection, the finance department invites application from respective union leaders. The last date for submission of application is on 15 July 2006.
