The TISI Sangam has cancelled the 2020 Annual TISI Sangam Convention due to COVID-19.
Sangam Secretary-General Damend Gounder says the decision was made after extensive consultations with its members, District Presidents and the Council of Management members.
He says the 2020 Annual Sangam Convention was scheduled to be held over the Easter weekend in Suva and would have attracted some 10,000 Sangam members and the public on a daily basis.
Gounder says about 1500 overseas delegates had confirmed their participation in this 4-day event.
The Secretary-General also says the world is in a pandemic state due to the Coronavirus outbreak and countries, including Fiji have taken very positive and preventive measures to contain the spread.
He adds that the TISI Sangam Executives will also be meeting this weekend to discuss various ways to engage and work with the government to assist in the containment of the virus and safe health of the people.
