Re:Invitation for the International Conference on Socialism in the 21st

Dear Comrades and Friends,

It is my pleasure to inform you that the Madan - Ashrit Memorial
Foundation, a social institution established in 1993 to protect and
disseminate the contribution made by the people's leader and former
General Secretary of our Party late Com. Madan Bhandari and Com. Jeev
Raj Ashrit, is hosting an international conference on Socialism in the
21st Century in Kathmandu, Nepal on 5-10 November, 2000. I hope that you
have already received an initial invitation from the organizing
committee to your esteem Party for the participation in the Conference.

The conference, in broader terms, aims to share experiences, views and
ideas on socialism in light with on-going debates and practices around
the world, and search for new paradigms, perspectives and dimensions to
consolidate the movement as a unified effort of all of us.

The century-in-passing, has given an obvious message that socialism is
not moribund. This has remained a source of inspiration for the people
fighting for their future, the future based on justice, freedom and
equality. Despite an attack of capitalist forces, mounted from all
quarters and through various means, on socialism, it has stood as an
only alternative to the ills yielded by capitalism. However, there are
some problems inherent in itself. The breakdown of Soviet model of
socialism has been a lesson learning exercise.

Our Party, CPN (UML) would be very much pleased to have the
participation of your party in the conference which would help to
understand and learn from the diversified views and experiences from the
socialist and communist movement in different countries. At this point
again, our party, CPN (UML) would like to invite you to participate in
the conference. The organizing committee will shortly come to you with
further details in terms of venue, and others.

For further information please visit the conference website: or contact email: samajbad at, Fax

Looking forward to hearing from you at the earliest date possible.

Comradely regards.

Yours sincerely,

J.N. Khanal
