A number of the board of directors and members of Goans Connecting Goans Association were present on the occasion.

The Board of directors also felicitated UAE’s teenage sensation Aayan Khan, who scripted history as he became the youngest player to feature in the T20 World Cup.

Prominent among them were Philip James Soares, Vice Chairman, Yoguish Jagdish Rav Valaulikar, Secretary, Joao Gratiano Lino Dias, Treasurer, Akbar Khan, Director; Gregory Joseph De Barros, director; Mustak Saiad, director; and Samson Kari, director.
