Thank you for the opportunity for the World Archaeological Congress to submit a
discussion paper on implementing priorities for Australia’s World Heritage Committee
membership. I enclose our responses to the questions posed by the committee. Given the
short timeframe, some of these answers have had to be brief.

The World Archaeological Congress would welcome the opportunity for fuller discussion
of these issues at a later point.

I’d like to wish the committee all the best in their endeavours.

Yours sincerely,

Professor Claire Smith, President
