I WONDER if they held the meetings in a room full of mirrors:
Forum Barcelona - a public-private partnership to advance sustainable development, cultural diversity and peace-building - has announced its backing for the Global Compact initiative of United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan that promotes better corporate practices around the world.

The announcement came yesterday in Barcelona, Spain, at the end of a four-day meeting on "The Role of Corporations in the 21st Century" and also heralded the establishment of a Global Compact Centre.
No word on whether UNSCAM was or will be discussed.
