Successful IGTC Strategy Session with global grain trade leaders in London

IGTC members and Corporate Stakeholders travelled from Argentina, Australia, Canada, EU, Kenya, Mexico, Singapore, Ukraine and USA to participate in the IGTC’s Strategy Session on Monday 18th June. 

The London meeting was a timely opportunity to discuss global issues impacting the grain trade including:  

  • Cartagena biosafety protocol
  • Plant breeding innovation
  • Low level presence
  • Electronic trading documentation
  • Maximum residue limits
  • Phytosanitary control measures

Policy discussions were chaired by IGTC Vice President Iliana Axiotiades (COCERAL). Participants made recommendations for IGTC action, particularly on grain trade messaging and communication with governments as well as actors in the agriculture value chain. 

A report detailing the outcomes of the meeting will be circulated by E-mail to all IGTC full association members and Corporate Stakeholders.

“What Brings us Together?” - IGTC at the annual OECD Forum with the B20 in Paris, France

The IGTC attended the OECD Forum in Paris this week to evaluate the opportunity for the grain trade to provide advice to governments on the impacts of policy decisions on commercial requirements and economics of the world's food, feed and processing industries.  

“What Brings us Together?” was the theme of the Forum, during which OECD Secretary General José Ángel Gurría Treviño and President Macron of France highlighted the need to increase trust in multilateral institutions and bolster their work in areas such as international trade flows, investment and the digital revolution. 

The IGTC’s fruitful participation at the event was made possible thanks to collaboration with “Business at OECD – BIAC”, the private sector liaison at OECD, as well as the B20 and its Argentine presidency, led by Daniel Funes de Rioja. A report from the meeting will be provided by the IGTC Secretariat at the in-person London Strategy Session on 18 June.
