The Treaty of sor on the General Assembly:
Article 29
: The General Assembly is the supreme organ of the Forum of International Cooperation and Trade. It consists of the heads of government or ministers of the Member States. It has as its principal powers, in addition to such others as are assigned to it by the Treaty, the following:
   a) To decide the general action and policy of the Forum, determine the structure and functions of
       its organs, and consider any matter relating to friendly relations among the Member States;
   b) To establish measures for coordinating the activities of the organs, agencies, and entities of the
       Forum among themselves;
   c) To promote collaboration, especially in the economic, technological, scientific and cultural fields,
       with other international organisations whose purposes are similar to those of the Forum of
       International Cooperation and Trade;
   d) To approve the program-budget of the Forum and determine the quotas of the Member States;
   e) To adopt general standards to govern the operation of the Office of the Secretary General of the
       Conference of Ambassadors; and
   f)  To adopt its own rules of procedure and its agenda.
The General Assembly shall exercise its powers in accordance with the provisions of the Treaty and of other applicable treaties.

Article 30: The General Assembly shall establish the bases for fixing the quota that each Government is to contribute to the maintenance of the Forum, taking into account the ability to pay of the respective Member States and their determination to contribute in an equitable manner. Decisions on budgetary matters require the approval of two thirds of the Member States.

Article 31: All Member States have the right to be represented in the General Assembly. Each Member State has the right to one vote.

Article 32: The General Assembly shall convene twice a year during the period determined by the rules of procedure and at a place selected in accordance with the principle of rotation. At each regular session the date and place of the next regular session shall be determined, in accordance with the rules of procedure.
If for any reason the General Assembly cannot be held at the place chosen, it shall meet at the Office of the Secretary General of the Conference of Ambassadors, unless one of the Member States should make a timely offer of a site in its territory, in which case the General Assembly may agree that it will meet in that place.

Article 33: In special circumstances and with the approval of two thirds of the Member States, a special session of the General Assembly may be convoked by the Secretary General of the Conference of Ambassadors.

Article 34: Decisions of the General Assembly shall be adopted by the affirmative vote of an absolute majority of the Member States, except in those cases that require a two thirds vote as provided in the Treaty or as may be provided by the General Assembly in its rules of procedure.
