Delegates met in the inter-regional negotiating group throughout the day and into the evening, to address benefit-sharing and access on the basis of the revised draft tabled on Tuesday, and the preamble on the basis of the Cali Annex. Informal groups met on compliance with mutually agreed terms (article 14) and on the concept of utilization in the context of benefit-sharing (article 4.2). A closed meeting of regional representatives was held in the afternoon.
