The meetings opened with a review of the outcome of the recent October 2009 GRE session where GTB had submitted 16 proposals for consideration. Of these 14 were adopted and will be transmitted to WP29 for its March 2010 session. The two remaining proposals will be considered again at the next GRE session following incorporation of contributions from GRE experts.
The General Assembly continued to work upon the reorganisation of the GTB operating structure and the working procedures of the working groups and taskforces. This is being done to improve efficiency and value for the members and to ensure that GTB is in a position to continue to provide a comprehensive expert contribution to the work of GRE and WP29.
The GRE chairman, Marcin Gorzkowski, acknowledged the importance of the contribution of GTB during his report to the 148th WP29 session with his reference to the “advantageous cooperation between GRE and GTB,”
