Virtual Conference, 1999

    The Virtual Conference was launched by the Donor Committee to look particularly at measuring performance. It became more than this, however, as it provided a forum in which the emerging ideas about developing commercial BDS markets could be discussed in real time by anyone in the world who had an interest. During the 5 weeks of the Virtual Conference, over 50 people, associated with 13 member agencies, sent a wealth of thoughtful and informative material. The archives therefore provide a rich library of perspectives and comments, based on hard-won experience from many countries.
