The Governing Council has agreed that in the year 2002 its meetings will continue to be held, as a rule, on alternate Thursdays. As in 2001, exceptions to this rule are envisaged in order to accommodate special holiday situations. Two meetings will again be held outside Germany. As already announced, the Governing Council will meet on 7 February 2002 in Maastricht and on 4 July 2002 in Luxembourg. These meetings will be hosted by De Nederlandsche Bank and the Banque centrale du Luxembourg, respectively.

In addition, the General Council has agreed that the current practice of having quarterly meetings is to be maintained.
