Starting from June 10, this 5-day event covered meetings of APMP EC, DEC and TC Chairs. A DEC Technical Assistant (TA) Workshop, an informative and fruitful discussion platform aimed to find proper and effective mechanisms and approaches to facilitate technical assistance to developing member economies of APMP to underpin their effective participation in global trade, became an important component of this event. A local lab tour at the Metrology Institute of Shanxi province was also arranged.

In the first section of EC meeting, EC discussed feedback from all members on the strategic planning report (2006 draft), with a view to achieve a consensus on objectives and priorities that will help determine APMP’s next-step projects. EC members also reviewed minutes of the 37th EC meeting, and had preliminary discussion for EC/TC Chairs joint meeting. In the second section, EC had discussions about award and prize, new membership application from Kazakh Institute of Metrology (KazInMetr), Kazakhstan, the transfer of APMP functions, matters arising from the joint meeting of TC Chairs and EC, schedule of the next EC meeting and other meetings and other matters.

The DEC meeting discussed and adopted the Report of 13th DEC meeting, discussed matters. In the EC/TCCs meeting that followed up, members discussed the plan to elect new TC Chairs and EC members, TC related issues, JCRB and RMO issues, APEC issues and others.

The TA workshop, progressed following scientific and systematic procedures of case study, sub-group discussion, all-inclusive discussion and conclusion withdraw, made effective efforts in identifying ways to enhance technical assistance delivery. The workshop conducted case studies by listening to presentations from the recipient economy, the funding/delivering agency, as well as the metrology experts, then identified lessons to be learned and key issues and concerns, and finally worked out plans to better carry out the technical assistance to APMP members from developing economies. Mr.Robert Kaarls, CIPM secretary and CCQM president, as well as two representatives respectively from UNIDO and PTB attended the Workshop as invited reporters.
