Today we had the opportunity to be part of a very important event: Venezuela’s final meeting on DIS 29500 fast-tracking. Even though we’re working on this matter since 2007, and we weren’t approved official participation as a community, we managed to be there today. There was a strong discussion; and we had our chance to participate. I believe we were welcomed by the NB and hopefully we, as a community, can be part of future discussions in a very constructive way. Thanks again to all the committee members and our NB who made it possible for us to participate today.

    ¡Pobre México! ¡Tan lejos de Dios y tan cerca de los Estados Unidos! :D

    This could be decisive one.. levels of corruption in EU have led to lots of vote changes to approve..
