The meeting discussed preparations for the 7th News Agencies World Congress to be held in Morocco from November 30 to December 1 this year. The NACO approved the following theme for the Congress: "The future of news agencies in a post-pandemic world." The NACO members also agreed on the topics of the four panel sessions.

A video presentation by Morocco news agency MAP highlighted the venue of the Congress, technical equipment, as well as logistics issues such as a traditional cultural program designed for such large-scale events.
