43 DECEMBER 2011 Country meeting indicated their support of the KDA's call for the revision of the contractual arrangements it had entered into for conducting the 2013 Congress. Matters relating to the conduct of future FDI Congresses were discussed. The Associations' generally supported the discussion at General Assembly A in relation to the consideration that was being given by FDI to future Congresses. They indicated they would eagerly await the determination of FDI. OPEN FORUM 3 Open Forum 3 continued discussion on new Policy Statements. Following this, discussion centred on FDI finances. In particular, the financial arrangements that had been put in place for the FDI Congress held in Brazil and those that had been agreed to for the 2012 Hong Kong Congress. Conflicting advice had been provided and discussions sought clarification. NATIONAL LIAISON OFFICERS' MEETING Unfortunately, the National Liaison Officers' meeting was shortened due to the prolonged discussions during Open Forum 3. Discussion focused upon improved delivery of communication between FDI and members. The FDI website is in the process of being revamped to help facilitate this. The UNEP Global Mercury issue was discussed by Dr Julian Fisher. The Executive Director made a brief presentation outlining the Strategic Plan and future FDI activities. GENERAL ASSEMBLY B AND ELECTIONS At General Assembly B the new Policy Statement Classification of Caries Lesions of Tooth Surfaces and Caries Management Systems was accepted. Modifications were made to a number of other Policy Statements and these will be posted to the FDI website in due course. Reports were provided by the Budget Reference Committee and the Congress Committee Task Team. Considerable debate centred on the Brazil Congress accounting systems and the arrangements for the 2012 Hong Kong event. It was evident from the discussions/debate that poor management practices may have been in existence. Elections took place for Committee membership, the Council and Speaker. Importantly, for the Australian Dental Association, Neil Hewson was elected to the position of FDI Speaker with a majority vote of 60 per cent. Others elected included, Dr Tin Chun Wong (Hong Kong) who was declared elected President-elect in an uncontested ballot and Dr Kathryn Kell (USA) was elected Treasurer. Dr Emile China (Benin); Professor Kambara (Japan); Dr Kofo Savage (Nigeria); Dr G Seeberger (Italy); Dr Jamie Edelson (Mexico); and Dr Kim Chuan How (Malayasia) were elected Councillors. Dr Orlando Monteiro da Silva (Portugal) assumed the Presidency. The next FDI Congress is the 100th FDI Annual World Dental Congress and will be held in Hong Kong from 29 August to 1 September 2012.
