Thereafter, Mr. Abdollahpour suggested: that the honorable Deputy of Handicrafts of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts should include two programs: “Honoring the Cultural Personalities of Asia in the field of Handicrafts” and “Holding the First Cultural Week of ACD” in its plans for the next year.

Mr. Jafari Malak also suggested that since “Highlighting the Outstanding Role of Women in Asian Culture” is one of the approved programs of CCCACD, therefore, a part of the above-mentioned suggested program can be allocated to women, and if this is done, other specialized centers can be invited to participate in it.
