In view of the COVID-19 situation and following the safety and health risk assessment undertaken by the Office for the Governing Body, all group meetings and plenary sittings of the 340th Session were held through the Zoom platform.
The 338th Session, originally scheduled for 12-26 March, did not take place in view of the restrictions to meetings and travel in place since early March as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
