OCA Acting President Randhir Singh, who in his opening address  said the OCA was “going through a difficult time” closed the meeting calling for unity among all NOCs in Asia. 


“Let’s all work together as one team with one voice. We are all brothers and we need all your support to face the world,” Randhir Singh said.
