As the negotiated documents for this session are finalized, attention in the corridors has turned to arrangements for the high-level meeting scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday. It is likely that more than 36 ministers will participate at this open meeting. There will be no speakers' list and some observers have said that they hope that there would be no formal statements in order to promote dialogue. Razali is scheduled to open the meeting and discussion will continue through Thursday morning. Razali will then present a summary of the discussion and the group will have to agree on the format and the substance of the document on Thursday afternoon.
