To ensure that BASIC continues be seen as anchored within the larger developing country bloc of G-77 and China, the representatives of the Africa Group, the Latin America and AOSIS have been invited to participate in the meeting. The "BASIC plus" participation includes Argentina, which holds the G-77 chair, Algeria as representative of the Africa Group and Maldives from the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS). Sunday's meeting is the only formal consultation that the BASIC will hold ahead of the April meetings in Bangkok to be held under the aegis of the UNFCCC.
