Nine heads of state and government attending the NATO Summit are to take part in the Transatlantic Forum organized by the German Marshall Fund (GMF) on April 1-3 in Bucharest.

"The conference will be a special event, unfolding in the presence of more than 275 participants from 34 countries, nine heads of state and government, 24 ministers and MPs and 40 chairmen of institutes and corporations from both Atlantic shores," said Craig Kennedy, President of the German Marshall Fund.

Panel discussions are to be focused on the "Balkans after Kosovo," "Arms and gas: NATO's role in Eastern Europe," "Deficit of democracy: is the West winning the battle in the East?" "NATO door closed or open?" "NATO in Afghanistan: success is not in sight, failure is not an option," "Ukraine and NATO," "Arms control in danger: the future of the missile shield and CFE Treaty" and "Russia on the rise: which is the impact for NATO?"

U.S. President George W. Bush is to give a speech at the forum Wednesday morning.

GMF was set up in 1972 by Germany in memory of the assistance offered by the United States under the Marshall Plan, with the aim of promoting democracy, cooperation and understanding between the U.S. and Europe.

The organization is based in Washington. Its European offices are in Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Bucharest, Ankara, Belgrade and Bratislava.
