Asia-Pacific Socialist Organisation Conference in Sydney

Asia-Pacific Socialist Organisation Conference in Sydney

The DAP will attend the Second Asia-Pacific Socialist Organisation Conference to be held in Sydney on Fed. 6 – 8, 1981. The DAP will be represented by DAP Deputy Secretary-General, Sdr. Lee Lam Thye, and National Organising Secretary,Sdr. P. Patto.

The main themes for the Conference will be:

• Relations Between the Developed and Developing Nation in the Region;
• Future of the Asia-Pacific Socialist Organisation and the Scope for membership.

The DAP delegation will present a paper on “Population Growth and Development” on 7th Feb, 1981.

The APSO Conference is being held in Sydney because the Australian Labour Party is the ruling party in New South Wales. As a consequence, the Conference will be officially opened by the Premier of New South Wales, Neville Wran, who is also the President of the Australian Labour Party

Chinese Rocket in the process of preparation

After a long lapse, the Chinese Rocket is now in the process of preparation, and beginning January 1981, the Chinese Rocket would appear regularly every month. The Chinese Rocket is in the charge of an editorial board under the chairmanship of the Acting Publicity Secretary, Sdr. Dr. Tan Seng Giaw, with Sdr.

State and branched must gear themselves to push the sales of the Chinese Rocket every month.
