Abstract
The Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) is one of the operating modes of the VLT. In addition to consisting of the four stationary 8-meter-diameter telescopes, it includes a number of movable Auxiliary Telescopes which both complement the (u,v) plane coverage of the large telescopes and provide a powerful interferometric facility by itself (available 100 percent of the time). The current plans for the implementation of the VLTI are described. These plans will be finalized after the choice of the VLT site in 1990.
