Message from WKO President(February & March 2017)

Dear Branch Chiefs and Contacts,
Thank you for your continuous efforts for the further development of WKO. 1 month has passed already in 2017, a year of great hope. I am sure that all of you set your goals for this year when we entered the New Year, but in our daily activities, it is easy to lose sight of such goals. It would be ideal if we could discipline ourselves, keep sight of our goals, and make this a year of great development. Let us confirm again our mindset to keep true to our original intention.
