It is with a sense of delightful nostalgia that the present writer begins to gather his personal recollections of his past association with the Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization (AALCO), an original inter-regional organization, concerned with international legal developments for the AsianAfrican Regions, especially at this juncture as the Regional Organization is preparing to publish a commemorative volume containing essays in international law. The publication is indeed to be welcome. His pleasant recollections of the activities of the inter-regional organization are still so vivid in his fondest memory that a memorable record may be kept and preserved for the benefit of succeeding generations of Asian-African international legal scholars. This record will of necessity be confined to but a handful of selected topics of special significance to the Organization and its Member States.
