Meetings of the FCI Judges and Shows Commissions

On 30-31 January, 2016, the FCI Judges and Dog Shows Commissions met, first separately, then jointly. The meetings took place in Cebu (Philippines), in the framework of an international dog show organised there and one week after the « Philippine Circuit » in Manila.

About thirty countries were represented, by 1 or 2 delegates. Many points and proposals from the member-countries and the FCI General Committee were discussed.
