Participants were serving archivists or librarians from SAA China, Hong Kong, Macao and Korea. Financial statement of the program was also tabled for member’s information.
5.1.2 Japan was of the opinion that the program in Hong Kong was a bit too long and wondered if participants were allowed to take part in just parts of the program. SG said it could be arranged with Hong Kong University.
5.1.3 SG mentioned that there might be a revamping of the PCAS program in order to have it “modernized” to meet the needs of the archival community.
