Decision ID: 002876

In October 2002 the 1971 Fund Administrative Council decided that it would not be feasible to increase the length of the autumn session and that holding joint meetings of the governing bodies of the two Funds would result in only a marginal saving of time. It was emphasised that it would be preferable to continue to hold meetings in the building of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for convenience and cost reasons, recognising that this restricted the number and timing of meetings. There was also support for holding meetings back-to-back with IMO meetings to reduce the amount of travelling for delegations. It was agreed that it would be useful for delegations if a provisional timetable was made available to them at the beginning of the meeting week.
