President's Meeting 2013 Report

I am pleased to report that the WFDB’s Presidents’ Meeting, hosted by the Borsa Istanbul, was incident free and generated positive results.

The venue was spectacular which contributed to good working conditions. The social events hosted, a dinner cruise on the Bosphorus and a gala dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel on the banks of the Bosphorus, were superb.

As we have reached the mid-year period I would like to wish our friends in the northern hemisphere countries a good and well deserved safe vacation.
