PLENARY: The Plenary will meet today at 11:00 am in Conference Room 2. The Chair has announced that he will circulate his draft text, although Conference Services cannot guarantee it will be available at the beginning of the meeting. Peru, Chile, Korea and Colombia have already indicated that they will speak this morning. Three NGOs are also expected to speak: Women and Fisheries Network, on behalf of many participants in the NGO Network; Fisherman, Food and Allied Workers; and Inshore Fisheries from Newfoundland. The Chair has said that he hopes the business of the formal meeting will not be prolonged and that governments will keep their statements about future sessions short. Nandan hopes to adjourn this session of the Conference at or before 1:00 pm.
