The Secretariat of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) proudly participated in the XIV Christmas Charity Bazaar - an esteemed event organized by the Ambassadors Spouses Association of foreign countries accredited in the Kazakh capital. The event took place at Radisson Hotel Astana on 3 December 2023.

Bringing together representatives from the diplomatic corps, international organizations, schools and charitable institutions, the Bazaar provided a chance for participants to showcase the rich culture of their respective countries through a diverse array of national goods, souvenirs, garments, handicrafts and more.

The CICA Secretariat remains steadfast in its commitment to promoting dialogue and cooperation, not only within the framework of its core mission but also by actively supporting charitable endeavours aligned with its values.

The CICA Secretariat looks forward to continued collaboration with the diplomatic community and charitable organizations to create a lasting and positive impact on the lives of those in need.
