The GEO-X Plenary and the Geneva Ministerial was held from 12 to 17 January 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland. At the conclusion of the meeting, GEO Members and Participating Organizations unanimously agreed to extend GEO's charter for an additional 10 years. 

Fueled by open data, GEO's efforts are now evident in most regions of the world. The United States has been a pioneer in making satellite and other observations data freely available and is a major supporter of GEO. The U.S. delegation to the conference included representatives from multiple agencies, including NOAA, NASA, the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Department of Commerce, USDA, USAID and the State Department.

As of January, 2014, GEO is comprised of 89 nations and the European Commission and 77 participating organizations.
