The twenty-fourth session of GFCM was attended by eight members of the Commission. The main issues discussed by the session were the conclusions of the Extraordinary Session of GFCM which took place from 7 to 9 July in the same venue and which discussed the scale of contributions for an autonomous budget and a tentative programme of work for the intersessional period. The Commission reviewed the intersessional activities and the recommendations of the two sessions of its Scientific Advisory Committees (Rome, Italy, March and June 1999). The Commission could not reach an agreement on the scale of contributions but tentatively agreed on an "indicative annual budget" and adopted a programme of work for the interssessional period - year 2000. The session agreed on priorities for the Scientific Advisory Committee.
