FIG Congress and General Assembly

At the General Assembly 2021 the host and destination of FIG Congress 2022 was moved from Cape Town South Africa to Poland. Our Polish Association of Surveyors SGP took up the challenge to organise this large 4-year Congress within a year.

Hoping that the travel situation will improve over time and to get some more time for the preparations it has been decided to move the Congress and also the General Assembly to August/September 2022 (instead of May/June).
