Organized by ASEAN Chess Academy with joint organizer Pahang Chess Association, the event has received the endorsements of support from the Pahang State Government, Malaysian Chess Federation and the Asian Chess Federation.

The event also is commemorative with Visit Pahang Year 2017 but more importantly the 50th Anniversary of ASEAN Group.

The local entity will facilitate to invite the Prime Minister for the Opening and the State Crown Prince for the Closing while the Social Night to be graced by the State Ministry for Tourism.

Please note the respective deadlines; 25 October 2017 shall be final deadline. Please assist to register/pay as early as before 25 August 2017so that the organizers do not need to incur additional costs for hotel bookings.

There are daily flights between Singapore and Kuantan but only one flight per day.

The most economical would be to land in KL airport and use buses to ferry everyone to Kuantan – a 3-hour journey. There are only 2 flights a day between KL and Kuantan.

Thank you very much for your patience and hope to see the Family again very soon.
