Zafer Cengiz's comment, April 26, 2:36 PM
Good news to hear about minor improvements on DMO concept, where tho whole World needs this medicine for developing a healthy TT Industry at regional & National levels. BUT to attain the 5 titles mentioned above, I must underline that "proper NGOs are needed to be functional" for organizing these activities, within the support of all related regional stakeholders!
