2009 - PARIS. The celebration for the year 2009 took place on December 11 in Paris, France, organized by the Union Nationale de la Propriete Immobiliere (UNPI - As special topic of the Day, UNPI President - UIPI Vice president Mr. Jean Perrin had selected to speak about: "L'image de la Propriete Immobiliere dans l'opinion publique" ("The image of Immovable Property in the public opinion").
The topic was chosen because it touches an extremely important matter: Each of our associations - members has the very heavy national task not only to guide its members towards a socially positive behaviour, but also to create a positive image in the public opinion of its country. This is today the real "battlefield", where social wars are gained or lost, this is actually determining the possibilities for success in what our associations are fighting for! The topic was very important not only for the delegations of all the represented associations, and the public relations officers, but also for the press people who attended the press conference which followed afterwards.
UNPI President Jean Perrin gave the main speech of the day, titled "L'image de la Propriete Immobiliere dans l'opinion publique", or in english: "The image of property in the public opinion". The UIPI President Stratos Paradias stressed that the legal as well as the moral basis of our struggels is the fact that property right is an internationally recognized Human Right.
Other important speakers took the floor on important matters concerning property rights and property restitution.
