Debriefing from "Intersessional" in Paris
  German Government Lauds Cooperation with Civil Society
  Berlin, 26 July 2003. The German government has published its internal debriefing from the "Intersessional" meeting in Paris. In it, the slow progress of negotiations is lamented, but cooperation with civil society is applauded. "Opening the German governmental delegation proved as unproblematic in practice and was perceived within and outside the EU-framework as a clear German committment to an inclusive approach of the summit", the report by the ministry of economics and labour from 25 July says. Before the third PrepCom conference in September, there will be another meeting with civil society and the private sector, the accompanying letter makes clear. In Paris, German government delegates announced their plans to produce a common German position within this framework until the summit. Currently, the German government is asking for written statements (half a page each) on the contested issue areas. These will be fed into the further intersessional process within the EU and in Geneva before PrepCom3.
