The Chair then convened a formal meeting on Thursday, 12 December to adopt the conclusions and the report of the meeting. No formal report was prepared. Delegates agreed to adopt an outline of the report and empowered the rapporteur to complete the report, subject to review at AGBM-6. The Chair noted that, according to his informal consultations, AGBM-5 achieved more progress than is immediately apparent and there is much common ground to be developed. He noted that statements until this meeting were in general terms and that the next document will bring AGBM to more concrete discussions.
