OHRC at HK Asia-Pacific Forum

HONG KONG: The Oman Human Rights Commission (OHRC) on Sunday participated in the annual meeting of the Asia-Pacific Forum currently being held in Hong Kong, People’s Republic of China. The meeting discussed several topics, such as the challenges and achievements of the national human rights institutions affiliated to the forum. OHRC participated in the regional conference on equality organised by the Asia-Pacific Forum and the Hong Kong Equal Opportunities Commission, during which many civil society organisations and international and regional observers were invited to participate in the conference. The conference dealt with topics related to persons with disabilities and expat workers, and the definition of gender and stereotypes about women, which distanced them from equality and other topics. — ONA
