executives, journalists, educators and students, civic and religious leaders, and other interested
citizens in order to help them better understand the world of domestic and international trade.

The Council also announced today that it intends to enlarge the consultative committee to
embrace the world of academia and research. It is also the intention to create a number of
debating spaces to promote inter-disciplinary discussion and thinking, especially amongst
younger members – notably small business owners. The next Governing Board meeting will be
held on the 18th July 2014 in Manila.
