The decisions of the 17th Governing Council meeting of ESAMRDC were reviewed in connection with the implementation of the work programme of the centre during the period July-September 1997. The board noticed that efforts were made by the Director General to implement the decisions of the Governing Council. Actions were taken to (a) adopt a cash accounting system; (b) establish cost and profit units at the levels of mineral processing, chemical laboratory, mineralogy/petrology and geoinformation and (c) proceed with the rehabilitation of the Centre including resolution of the issue of the contractor and consultant. The Board of Directors was established and the Agreement establishing the Centre, Staff Rules and Regulations, and the new Financial Rules and Regulations revised.
