Bloomberg also participated in a special session of the meeting during which they delivered a presentation and exchanged views with partner organisations on their proposal to publish JODI data on their industry platforms and terminals. The JODI partners agreed to conduct a further review of the proposal before deciding on the path forward.

Partners also decided to organise JODI training workshops targeting the Asian and CIS regions later this year.
