changes that threaten to undermine their business positioning as well as
mounting pressures to generate more revenues for good cause funding. On
Day 2, we will explore the double edges, the Yin and the Yang of emerging
trends that affect lotteries. Can lotteries resist the tide of technological
change that break down national boundaries and stiffening competition from all
quarters? How can lotteries ride the waves of revolution in the age of Internet
and global casinos to reap benefits for themselves? How do we engage the
regulators, as we rise to these new challenges, to create a win-win situation?

On Day 3, lotteries look inward to assess their own
state of preparedness for the challenges ahead. Do we have strong
organizations that think one team? Do we have good corporate
governance and a strong social responsibility code? Are we functioning in

energy chi for the benefit of our organizations? The WLA
sub-committees will update us on the latest developments in CSR, risk
management issues and global insurance scheme. All that done, we round
off WLA2006 Convention with propitious advice from an authoritative Feng Shui
master, leading us into a successful 2007.
