At a meeting in February, EU telecoms ministers agreed to adopt a joint approach toward recent US proposals for the Net: 'It is our desire to work with the Americans on reorganisation of the Internet', said Barbara Roche, the meeting's UK chair. 'As the Internet has grown and developed, the approach that has to be taken is an international one, that also recognises the needs of industry.'
