On August 5, 2006 the Indian Catholic reported, "Participants of the Fourth Asian Youth Day (AYD) have learned about the family values of different religious traditions and how interreligious dialogue can start within the family. Leaders and young people from Anglican, Buddhist, Christian, Confucian, Hindu, Muslim, and Taoist faiths spoke to about 800 Catholic participants of the AYD on Aug. 1 during a session of 'Interfaith Dialogue.' Most speakers came from other Asian countries and accompanied the Catholic participants from their countries to the event. The meeting, whose theme is 'Youth, Hope of Asian Families,' began on July 28 and is to close on Aug. 5."
