The South Asia Wikimedians Meetup is planned for the Wikimedians belonging from South Asia to discuss latest updates, potential collaborations and future projects across the region. Although most attendees are expected to be from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, anyone who is from or is interested in the Wikimedia movement in the geographical regions of these countries — is welcome to attend! This meeting is scheduled right after the Asia-Oceania Meetup.
