The workshop was held from March 28 to April 2, 2000, instead of March 28 to April 1 as originally planned. The work began at the CEMAC hemicycle until April 1st and continued at the Levy's hotel on April 2nd. The calendar has been exceeded by 24 hours to compensate for the day of March 29, which is declared a public holiday in the Central African Republic.
It should be recalled that the opening ceremony was placed under the auspices of Mr Léon SALAM, Chief of Staff, representing the Minister of the Environment, Water, Forests, Hunting and Fisheries on mission. The text of his speech is appended to this report. The seminar began with work in plenary before continuing in committees. Three commissions have been set up for the occasion.
