Making the presentation, the Rector Major - Fr Pascual Chavez writes ``I take this opportunity to congratulate you and to express my thanks to all the confreres and lay co-workers in the 50 Provinces which have contributed to the development of the PDO over the last 10 years. By now the PDO has become an indispensable means for the coordination, consolidation and expansion of the Salesian mission. I should also like to express my appreciation to the agencies for Salesian apostolic solidarity (the Mission Offices and the NGO for development) for their constant professional contribution to this whole process.``

The Seminar was a success in identifying certain operating criteria. The integration of the PDO within the framework of the Provincial Structural Plan is a key instrument in the System of Salesian Apostolic Solidarity. This Seminar at Hyderabad was the second after the previous one held at Rome in 2005.

Fr Chavez hopes that the Acts of this Seminar ``with clear criteria for the development of the PDO and a number of good practical suggestions, will be a great help to the Provinces which have started with their Planning and Development Office. I ask the Provincials and their Councils to integrate this instrument within the Province to the benefit of a more structured, efficient, and sustainable Salesian Mission.``
