There is a specific reason for choosing the theme ‘Engaging the Challenges – Enhancing the Relevance’. A wise man once remarked: “In every failure, therein lies the seed of achievement’”. FIG shares the opinion that “In every challenge, therein lies the seed of enhancing relevance,” for surveyors across the globe, who have been diligently enhancing skills and knowledge, whilst exploring new technological platforms to deliver quality services, and contributing to the nation-building success of their respective countries.
