World Tamil Conference venue yet to be identiified

The district administration has begun efforts to identify a venue for the World Tamil Conference that will be held here from January 21 to 24 next year, Collector P.Umanath told presspersons on Sunday.While the administration was looking for massive sites, either belonging to the government or private organisations, it would also be prepared to look for smaller sites for more venues if various sessions were to be held simultaneously at different locations, the Collector said.

“Details yet to come”

“As of now, we have been told about the conference dates. The other details are yet to come. We will have to examine the sites from various requirements pertaining to the conference, such as accessibility, space to accommodate a large number of people and also facilities such as power and water supply,” Dr.Umanath said.The inspection of sites could be done only after knowing from the government what the requirements were, especially whether all events related to the meeting would be held at one place or at different places.

Once that was known, the administration could have a list of options for the government to choose from.

To involve civil society

While the government would have a State-level co-ordination committee to conduct the meet, there would be one at the district level also to make the arrangements.“We can involve the civil society such as non-governmental organisations and associations promoting Tamil in the arrangements.”“We are also doing a stock taking of the facilities available in and around the city for the participants to stay. The conference venue must be easily accessible from these areas,” Dr.Umanath said.

Asked whether Coimbatore had the infrastructure facilities to handle a huge inflow of delegates from within the country and other parts of the world, the Collector said: “The present Coimbatore has better facilities than what Thanjavur and Madurai had while hosting the earlier conferences.”
