The programme includes events from Monday 14 December to Thursday 17 December, with the plenary held on the 15th and 16th We are also pleased to announce the panelists for the high-level WSIS welcoming event, open to all WSIS delegates and UN badge-holders. Featuring a moderated, conversational panel, the event will take plaèe from 9 to 9:45 am in the Trusteeship Council Chamber and provide perspectives on issues raised during the review, including ICT development applications, the digital divide, internet governance, human rights, and security. As a snapshot of the review, and with such distinguished voices, we hope very much that all WSlS delegates will attend. The panelists are: Eric Schmidt, Chairman of Google Fadi Chehadé, President and CEO of ICANN HE Günther H. Oettinger, European Commissioner for Digital Economy & Society Mitchell Baker, Chair of Mozilla Foundation HE Siyabonga Cwele, Minister of Telecommunications and Postal Services, South Africa We would also highlight that an invitation to the WSIS reception - hosted by our missions in the UN Delegates' Dining Room from 5:15 to 8:30 pm on Tuesday 15 December - was dispatched on Wednesday, for all Heads of Delegations, Permanent Representatives, and experts. Please join us to celebrate six months (and ten years) of hard work.

3 Detailed information on the programme of activities, including speakers and concept notes, can be found at As noted in our previous letter, the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate () is organizing events on the 16th and 17th While the meetings are separate from WSIS, as delineated in the programme, they provide an opportune complement, addressing issues raised in the review. We look forward to seeing you next week, especially at the welcome event and reception on the 15th, Jänis Maeiks Ambassador Permanent Representative Republic of Latvia c1ti;? Ì Lana Z.
