  4. Nelson Ojijo says:

    Would the topic ‘Towards Vision 2030: Small-scale Agro-industries as an Avenue for Rural Industrialization’ be relevant to your conference? I think that the interface between agriculture and engineering is of particular importance to economies (e.g. Kenya’s) that are largely agro-based; but it may not fit in any of your sub themes.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    This is Laxman KC. I am a traffic/transportation engineer currently working in Nepal bearing director in Action Nepal. My major roles are detailed traffic impact studies, transportation planning, road safety etc.

    As a matter of fact, the traffic and transportation situation of Nepal is quite pity. As per the official statistics provided by the Nepal Police, Traffic Directorate crash rate in Nepal in the year 2009/10 was 11,747. The situation has further worsened in recent years than before. Traffic fatalities increased by 97.27% from 2001 to 2010 which is incomparable with the industrialized nations.

    I am glad on know that you are organizing this conferences in April 2012

    I am highly interested to make a paper for the conference and share the current situation with the professional of both developed and developing nations.

    I would be happy with you if you kindly make your higher consideration to make my trip possible to attend the conference.
