      IHEP has been endorsed as a new T1 for LHCb. It will continue as T2 for CMS, ATLAS and (new) ALICE. It has been decided that IHEP can pledge resources as a T1 already in 2024; this will need to reopen CRIC temporarily.

      The Serbian proposal to host a T1 center for CMS was presented. The Serbian technical teams will visit CERN in late summer to discuss with the CERN IT Storage, Compute and Network groups. A similar visit will happen at other T1s. The objective is to progress in the technical specifications of services at the Serbian site. The plan is to start contributing resources to CMS in late 2025. 

      JINR will continue contributing to WLCG as a T1 site for CMS and T2 for other experiments, following the CERN Council decision NOT to terminate the International Cooperation Agreement between CERN and JINR.  

      The WLCG Strategy 2024-2027 was endorsed. https://zenodo.org/records/12623280
