Eleventh session of the Global Food Market Information Group

22 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017

Country focal points and representatives of AMIS member organizations gathered on 22-23 June 2017 in Rome for the Eleventh Session of the Global Food Market Information Group. Featuring a rich two-day agenda, the meeting allowed ample room to discuss current market trends and review recent research findings in the area of market forecasting.

The meeting, which was opened by FAO Director General Mr. Graziano da Silva, put a particular emphasis on actively involving AMIS stakeholders. Unlike previous sessions, the Secretariat's presentation of the market situation and outlook for AMIS crops was followed by a panel discussion in which main trading nations of the respective commodity provided their perspectives on market developments.

At the end of the meeting, Friedrich Wacker of Germany handed over the Chairmainship to Mr. Jesús María Silveyra of Argentina who will chair AMIS for the next year.
