As the current President bows out, he expressed his thanks and appreciation to FIG’s corps of volunteers, those who are in leadership within FIG as well as FIG’s membership and partners that have worked together and contributed towards enhancing the usefulness for our sciences, technologies, knowledge and practices. It is the hope that all these energies and efforts have contributed much towards advancing the utility and standing of our Profession and the Federation. He is also very thankful for the support and contribution, friendship and counsel of so many from amongst FIG’s membership, partners and stakeholders.
