vice-chairperson for the working party on state trading enterprises

note by the secretariat

1.  During the meeting of the Working Party on State Trading Enterprises (the Working Party) of 16 July 2019, an interest was expressed in allowing the Working Party to have a vice-chairperson.[1] During the meeting of the Working Party of 1 November 2019, it was confirmed that the Working Party envisaged that the Chairperson of the Working Party would consult with Members regarding the future vice-chairperson, and that the election of the vice-chairperson would take place in the Working Party, as was already the case for other subsidiary bodies of the Council for Trade in Goods (CTG).[2]

2.  As undertaken with the Working Party,[3] the Chairperson of the Working Party therefore wrote to the Chairperson of the CTG asking whether the CTG agreed that the Working Party could act as other CTG subsidiary bodies do, by consulting on, and electing, its own vice-chairperson. The text of this letter from the Chairperson of the Working Party, dated 10 December 2019, is hereby circulated as Annex 1 to the present note.*

3.  In a communication dated 13 December 2019, the CTG Chairperson conveyed that request to the CTG Members, proposing that if no objections were raised by 20 December 2019, it would be understood that the CTG agreed that the Working Party could act as other CTG subsidiary bodies did, by consulting on, and electing, its own vice-chairperson. The text of this communication from the CTG Chairperson is hereby circulated as Annex 2 to the present note.*

4.  Having received no objections from CTG Members, the CTG Chairperson accordingly informed the Chairperson of the Working Party that the Working Party could proceed to consult on, and elect, its own vice-chairperson, as other CTG subsidiary bodies do. The text of this letter from the CTG Chairperson to the Chairperson of the Working Party, dated 11 February 2020, is hereby circulated as Annex 3 to the present note.*
