The Council of Partners (CP) is the main consultative body of the GGP. Its main tasks are (a) to oversee the progress made in the implementation of the Infrastructure, (b) to reflect on and endorse the CB decisions on the overall organization of the project and (c) to make suggestions for and reflect on the future strategic development of the Infrastructure. The CP meets once a year and is also an international working group of the UNECE.
Members of the CP are representatives of institutions which are either involved in fielding the GGP in their respective countries or contributing to tasks at the international, coordinating level. The CP members elect a Chair from among its members. To strengthen the links between the Consortium Board and the national partners, the Chair of the CP will also be a member of the Consortium Board. The chair is elected with a simple majority of the votes for a period of three years.
