CAA Conference is Not Being Held
It was already known to everyone that the CAA Conference was going to be held in Bangladesh this year. It was being postponed again and again for the vulnerable political situation of Bangladesh. And at the end it is now decided by CAA (Commonwealth Association of Architects) and IAB that the CAA conference is not being held in this session for the ongoing emergency state in the country.
As it seems IAB (Institute of Architects Bangladesh) was absolutely prepared to arrange the conference. And the talked about political situation of Bangladesh was also not at all a problem, rather nowadays it’s more secured and calm situation is going on in the country. But two of the member institutes of CAA denied coming to attend the conference for the political situation and IAB was compelled to cancel the conference lastly.
