The overall goals of the meeting will be the presentation of the progress made since the last coordination meeting in June and the identification of the main tasks ahead.

Intermediary step
The meeting takes place as an intermediary step between the last Coordination Commission visit in June 2003 and the next one in January 2004. The key topics to be dealt with will be the status of the test events, the volunteer plan, an update on venue and transportation capacity, as well as press operations, marketing, communication, the competition schedule, the progress made in construction, security, accommodation and accreditation. The torch relay project will be discussed in a separate meeting.
