In the resolution adopted at the meeting of 8 october 1996, the Council of Ministers of the European Union has recognized the need for further analysis of the issues underlying development of information society policy internationally with a view to reaching a common understanding on means and conditions governing the use of global information networks and stresses the need for coordination between initiatives relating to the subjects, both in the Union framework and in other international fora.

In addition, the Council has welcomed the German proposal to host an international conference dedicated to this end that will be prepared in close cooperation with the European Commission and the Member States.
