The Session number becomes ESH 811. Attendance includes all Member Nations in the Region instead of selected Member Nations, resulting in an increase in direct meetings costs from $1 500 to $23 500.
ESH 904-905 Under programme 2.1.5 two "Seminars on Women in Agricultural Production" were programmed as Category 4 meetings.
