PrepCom Chair Dr. Fred Sai reported that the Bureau had met and discussed the possibility of establishing a parallel working group of the whole, chaired by the Vice Chairs from India and the Netherlands. Dr. Sadik then outlined the five sets of decisions that the PrepCom must take: 1) NGO accreditation; 2) the organization of issues; 3) rules of procedure; 4) the length of and agenda for the third PrepCom; and 5) the instructions and guidance to the Secretariat on the conceptual framework for the outcome of the Cairo conference. At the end of the day, Dr. Sai announced the nominations of Amb. Lionel Alexander Hurst of Antigua and Barbuda and Amb. Mauro Sergio Couto of Brazil to the Bureau from the Latin America and the Caribbean region.
