Dear distinguished colleagues and friends,

On behalf of APASWE, it is my great pleasure to invite you all to participate in the joint conference of APASWE and IFSW-AP held in Shenzhen, China. It is my great honor to welcome you and extend our greatest gratitude to our colleagues in China for their hard work as a host of this conference.

In reference to the conference theme, we hope that through this conference we could share, learn each others, and discuss challenges and responsibility to explore innovative social work and sustainable development

We note that there are so many personal and social problems, we can see that almost all people in the world face crises today. It is a big challenge for social work profession and education, especially in the Asia Pacific region, to work together for change, social justice, equality and for human dignity. Our social work education and practice should ensure cross-cultural sensitivity, social work indigenization and enlightening the people that Gross National Product (economic growth) is not the only important measurement, but the quality of people’s happiness (Gross National Happiness) is equally important.

Thanking you very much for your kind participation. I wish you have a fruitful conference.

Fentiny Nugroho, Ph.D
