Untitled-1Academy for Administrative Professionals, with a view of strengthening the cross cultural bonds amongst her fraternity, inaugurated a unique religious activity which will be a regular annual feature of the AAP calendar. A Sil program in this connection was organised on 12 August at the AAP Executive Director’s residence in Colombo 05.
