As you know, in Toronto, we did not meet with the GAC.
Effective interaction between the Council and the GAC has since been picked
up as part of our strategic focus.

One key reason for meeting with the GAC is in order to ensure that the GAC
is effectively and appropriately engaged with GNSO policy development.

We did meet with the GAC in Beijing and had a constructive discussion
including picking up on some of the work of the Board-GAC Recommendations
and Implementation Working Group (BGRI-WG).

Following some initial discussions, a proposed agenda is emerging for
meeting with the GAC in Durban which will take us forward from Beijing.
