It also helps different Governments of various countries about Homoeopathy.

India is going to be proud as the forthcoming president of LIGA is going to be an Indian Dr.Alok Pareek. A meeting was held for the NVP also.

Overall the Congress was a success . The Papers & Posters chosen for presentation were good which covered the Medicine, Material Medica, Philosophy, Research, Pharmacy Veterinary and Plants etc. along with various aspects of  Homoeopathy History and Challenges as important topics with Homeopathy Experience, Science and Art  as the theme of Congress.

In the light of  future conferences some measures are to be adopted as  Everyone as speaker should not be allowed or given more than one presentation. By giving many papers restricts the other doctors to participate and present their work. In future if anyone submits many papers Only one should be accepted for the  Oral Presentation and  maximum can be asked to showcase the rest posters. As being from India certainly we all missed the hospitality part in such conferences whereas whenever we hosted such congresses in the past they had been a grand functions full of Scientific Activities, Media Coverage, VIPs and Government  departments involvement, Food and Cultural activities  are being missed . Nevertheless for the cause of Homoeopathy LIGA Congress is a big Yearly Event.
