"At the recent Asia-Pacific Regional meeting in Hangzhou, Guo Zhan (International Vice-President from ICOMOS China) indicated to me that there could be scope for specialist architects and structural engineers from Australia to assist in the reconstruction of items damaged by the earthquake in the Diaolu villages. The details of the arrangement are not yet worked out, although I understand that some travel assistance may be provided by the Chinese government.
Could I again ask any of our members with appropriate expertise, who might be willing to go to China for a number of weeks at short notice, to send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) indicating your interest, availability and expertise.
