* Process v. concentrated at the Secretary-General;

* Report of the HLPDC outlines 5 action areas for action - Global
Connectivity, Inclusion, Digital Rights, AI and Data and Digital Trust and
Security;

* Roundtables analyzed the report and sent their suggestions for the action
areas; this informed the "Roadmap" which was launched earlier this year.

* Roundtable on trust and security could not agree on a document to submit
to the roadmap; however, there was a statement on the proposed commitment
to trust and security issued by civil society groups:

* Unclear information with regards to the future of the roundtables and how
their work will continue; however they are still active and can be joined
(email the Executive Office of the SG to join)

* Concerns around lack of coordination or space for actually receiving
comments from the different sectors;

* Might be of interest to the IGC to support the MAG response to the
Options paper
