PBS Attends 4th UBS-AAA Meet in Cambodia
Philippine Bible Society General Secretary Dr. Nora G. Lucero attended the 4th United Bible Societies-Asia Affinity Alliance (UBS-AAA) General Secretaries’ Meeting last March 28-31, 2016 in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The UBS-AAA was formed in 2013 by National Bible Societies in Asia that include Japan Bible Society, Korean Bible Society, Thailand Bible Society, Bible Society in Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam, Bible Society of Myanmar, Indonesian Bible Society, Bible Society in Malaysia, Nepal Bible Society, The Bible Society of Singapore [& Brunei], Ceylon Bible Society, The Bible Society of India, Bangladesh Bible Society, Pakistan Bible Society, Bible Society in Taiwan, Hong Kong Bible Society, and PBS.
The regional Bible Society grouping intends to provide a platform in which Bible Societies in Asia can exchange information, consult each other in relation to the regional Bible mission, and to discuss issues affecting the region as a whole. It also seeks to develop closer working relationships and foster partnerships among its members and the rest of the UBS family. The member-Bible Societies in Asia can build up one another by sharing resources and expertise through this regional group, which will also serve to represent the interests and to be the formal voice of all Asian Bible Societies within UBS.
