The World Customs Organization has hosted and co-sponsored the Worldwide Security Conference for the last 6 years. The French Government, in its capacity as Chair of the G8, has agreed to co-sponsor the WSC8. This will continue the trend of G8 Presidential support from the Russian, German, Japanese, Italian and Canadian Governments in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, respectively. The WSC is unique for its emphasis on bridging East-West divides by ensuring that fresh voices from Asia are prominent in the debates. The Council of Europe co-sponsored several workshops of WSC 6 and the Australian and Japanese Governments co-sponsored as special session of WSC 7.
