• Welcome to submit your opinions of Indigenous Legal Entities Planning and Setting

    In May 1st, 2016, Council of Indigenous Peoples passed the procedure of new draft bills, “Indigenous Legal Entities Planning and Setting”, then it consistently held 12 forums for “Indigenous Legal Entities” and 5 forums for “crucially consultative policies” to receive suggestions from all people in this profession.
