The Asian Jain Conference of the World Jain Congress was held at Bangkok (Thailand) on March 18,19,20, 1988 with the keen interest taken by Jains of that country. It was a successful attempt, made for the first time in an Asian country, outside India. Several University Professors of Thailand evinced keen interest in deeper studies in Jainism and for that purpose wanted availability of Jain texts. About 300 persons attended the three day deliberations daily including the 46 member delegation from India. The three day Asian Jain Conference organised by the Jains at Singapore in March, 1989 was equally successful. It was addressed by leaders of Singapore and other countries from all Walks of life. It was attended by over 700 participants daily.
