Today I attended the FIDE Development Commission meeting in Istanbul as a Councillor.

One of the proposals was that the old CACDEC levels 1 and 2 be replaced by a new system of five levels based on the ranking of the average of the top ten player ratings.

Australia was placed in level 2. New Zealand in level 3. PNG in level 4. Fiji, Palau, Guam and Solomon Islands in level 5.

Federations in level 3 and below may be eligible to receive activity rebates from 2013 onwards (up to the level of their annual FIDE fees). This would be a real big surprise for New Zealand!
