KANGGUI, Aug 30 : The Chin National Front (CNF) is likely to convene the Chin National Conference in the second week of November at Hakka Township of Chin state, Myammar.
According to a CNF source, the Central Committee for the Conference was constituted on August 19 at Yangon and comprises five members from CNF, 12 from Chin National University Students and 10 from different Chin national political parties.
The Central Committee will look into all aspects of the conference such as forming sub-committee on programme, media, etc.
Social and economic issues of Chin are likely to dominate the conference besides 'Peace Agreement' signed between the Government of Myanmar and Chin National Front, said the source while adding that CNF has been consulting people in different places since signing of the agreement with the Government.

The Chin National Conference day has no relation or connection with the so called Zomi National Day, claimed the CNF source adding that while preparation for the Conference is under process, the Zomis under Zomi Council are convening the Third World Zomi Convention at Lamka in Manipur inviting intellectuals, leaders of Zo descendants across the globe.
