    Hi Mr. Wan,

    Sorry for the late reply. I'm impressed too with the what you have done.

    I just discussed on certain issues that need to be addressed in the FRESH meeting with regards to the outcome of the need analysis. Carell would share with the FRESH committee members before the meeting (28/4).

    It is set that Dato' Mike, Ms. Ivy Wong and Ms. Rejani will be there before the meeting to meet the FRESH committee members.

    Congratulations. From your agenda there is no doubt that you take the future of Fraser’s Hill very seriously. Publishing on the web the issues discussed immediately after the meeting is a powerful tool to use in your international fundraising. Please continue the way you have started and I am convinced that you will meet your objectives. Thank you all for the efforts you are making to develop Fraser’s Hill to an example of sustainable development. Julien De Groote – Belgium.
