FIG Working Week Underway - 19/05/2015


The FIG Working Week was officially opened on Monday 18 May in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia. The theme of this year’s gathering of the International Federation of Land Surveyors (FIG) is ‘From the wisdom of ages to the challenges of the modern world’. FIG president Chryssy Potsiou opened the congress together with Angel Krumov Yanakiev, president of the Chamber of Graduated Surveyors, and co-conference director Zlatan Zlatanov.

The official opening ceremony concluded with a performance of traditional Bulgarian song and dance, and the 1,000-plus delegates then dispersed to attend the numerous technical sessions. In advance of the official opening, FIG held its General Assembly on Sunday. The FIG Working Week will draw to a close with the second part of the General Assembly on Thursday 21 May. A small exhibition is being held in parallel with the FIG Working Week to enable delegates to learn about the latest product developments.
