Originally confirmed to attend were the secretary general, Heyliger-Marten and Wescot-Williams. During the meeting, the other MPs expressed interest in either attending or having their option to attend remain open.
In her opening remarks at the start of the meeting, Heyliger-Marten said on August 12, Parliament received an invitation for MPs to attend the Congress and Trade Mission, which will be held in Niewspoort (The Hague), the Netherlands. On October 4, Parliament received the draft programme for the congress.
