The board was suggested to maneuver the account away from Spain and hoped to register and open an account in Mauritius however ultimately selected Singapore.
Sadly Skal Asia regardless of its lengthy historical past was by no means in a position to register as an entity that is inflicting us some appreciable ache and expense and maybe SI might help all unregistered SKAL groupings to be registered centrally via headquarters?
