Alejandra Danielson Castillo (US Grains Council)

The Industry Advisory Group (IAG) of the ePhyto Solution met on 30 January at WTO in Geneva, Switzerland. IGTC was elected Chair of the IAG in July 2018 for a term of two years, with Alejandra Danielson Castillo (US Grains Council) taking the role. Seven global commodity flows were represented at Wednesday’s Geneva meeting, with agreements on:

  • The launch of a cross-sector communications campaign to promote a fully functioning ePhyto Solution. 
  • Industry’s role in calling for an increase in governments registering for the ePhyto Solution to ensure maximum global coverage.
  • The urgent need for all commodity flows to “test” ePhyto exchange via case studies, to determine the interoperability with commercial operations.
