IGTC representation at International Grains Council (IGC) Market Conditions Committee (MCC)

IGTC Secretariat Katy Lee and Henry Yang, member representative of the China National Association of Grains Sectors (CNAGS) attended the September 2019 Market Conditions Committee (MCC) of the International Grains Council (IGC) in London. More than 15 government delegates were present at the meeting. High on the agenda were forecasts for cropping, harvest, and trade, as communicated by the IGC's regular Grain Market Reports (GMR).

IGTC took the opportunity to highlight some of the policy and official practices that are currently impacting the international trade of grains, oilseeds, pulses and other agri-bulks. Specifically reported were developments in the IGTC's work on plant breeding innovation and ePhytos. An IGTC briefing document circulated to IGC is here.
