Dear Colleagues,

1 August 2001

The development of UN/CEFACTís e-Business standards organisation

Further to the letter from the Chair of UN/CEFACT and myself to Plenary Heads of Delegation of 27 July (see attached) and to the various mails I have seen regarding the EWGís Rotterdam meeting, the new ad hoc group, and UN/CEFACTís future organisational structure, I would like to confirm that:

I hope that the above points clarify the intentions of the CSG. It is committed to move forward in a thoughtful and inclusive manner and to engage in constructive consultation.

I look forward to seeing you in Rotterdam.

Yours sincerely

Ray Walker

Chair UN/CEFACT Steering Group
