    First of all, let me say that Forum magazine is our no. 1 source of information. All the clients of our trade information centre take advantage of your information. We also summarize articles and refer to its content in our monthly bulletin. Congratulations.

    We definitely appreciate all the documents and information you send us and will gladly receive as much as you can send. The business community in developing countries is uninformed and therefore we try to gather as much as we can, and of course dissiminate to a growing audience.

    I was reading one of the Forum issues again today and remembered to write about the following.

    A couple of months ago, I downloaded all the documentation related to the Executive Forum on National Export Strategies held by ITC in September 1999. I have read all the documents and feel they are an excellent source of information and guidance for me and for our organization.

    It would have been most appropriate and beneficial for Honduras and FIDE to have known of such an event and to participate. Is ITC planning to organize another event like this? Is there information about all of ITC's events, seminars and programmes on ITC's web site, so that we can stay informed?

    Editor's note:
    The next Executive Forum will be held in the Lake Geneva area in October 2000 on the theme "Export Development in the Digital Economy". Check ITC's Executive Forum site (http://www.intracen.org/execforum) periodically for news and papers, or to download information from last year's event.

    The Executive Forum brings together a selected number of participants from trade-related public and private organizations worldwide in order to develop national export strategies. Participants directly contribute research to the event and then work jointly to shape its conclusions. By its very nature, the Executive Forum limits the number of participants at the actual event, which is a working meeting to shape strategies. The conclusions are presented on ITC's web site, in its magazine and in a publication in order to bring the results to a broad audience. We encourage readers to use the information in your own speeches and publications (with attribution to ITC) and as a springboard to design events and develop new strategies at national level.

    If your organization has an expertise in e-commerce issues and would like to contribute to the research pro-cess, contact Brian Barclay, Executive Forum Coordinator, at barclay@intracen.org
