“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.
