2. Proposal of agenda for the Commission meeting during the IC in Paris,

1-review the comcom plan ,  share assesmment  and comment it so we read on the same page ?  ( may 24th )

2-review the 2011-12 calendar-(including the media forum in 2012 )  and see how the working groups /intiaitives are going to relate to it – in the past there has been claims that not enough policy making and not enough cooperation was existing between them, shareing of contact etc .. define possible cooperation points  ( may 24th and 25th)

3-derive from there initiaitive on how to concretely involve more IC members organisations ?   remember (rabat questionnaire !) and apply them directly on may 25thand 26th during the IC  (may 25th)

4. exchange ambassadors with the various other commissions- as was done in mexico but in a reciprocal way   each commission sends ambassadors to others and receive theirs - and the topic is what are our relationships with other commissions ( may 25th)
