Everyone actively participated during the discussion, provided informative insight, and showed a willingness to solve the problems accordingly to the regulations and inclusiveness. This integral meeting with several parties was far from surprising. Our groups of PWDs have always engaged with the government. The DRT’s current team was indeed the former team …
