Canada is hosting an open ended workshop on the international movement of grains from 6-8 December 2011 at the Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel in Vancouver. The workshop is endorsed by the IPPC and is a joint activity of the North America Plant Protection Organization and the APPPC.
At the APPPC working group meeting on planning held in Bangkok from 26-28 April 2011, it was recommended that two representatives from member countries be funded to represent the APPPC at the grains workshop. These two representatives would canvass the views of APPPC countries prior to the workshop to ensure that all views of member countries are captured. Whilst noting that grain industry experts will attend the workshop, the working group agreed that the APPPC representatives should be drawn from relevant government agencies.
Member countries are invited to provide any recommendation of potential candidate to represent the APPPC at the grains workshop in Canada. When nominating candidates, please include their curriculum vitae and send their details to Mr. Rob Schwartz (email address: [email protected])
