Canada elected as new AMIS Chair

15 Mar 2018

Canada was unanimously elected as the new AMIS Chair. The chairmanship will be passed over from Argentina at the next meeting of the Global Food Market Information Group in May.

The election took place at this year's regular session of the AMIS Rapid Response Forum (RRF), which was held on 15 March 2018 in Rosario, Argentina. Speaking on behalf of the Canadian delegation, RRF focal point Mr. Steve Lavergne confirmed his country's strong commitment to the work of AMIS and the overall objective of enhanced market transparency. Canada will try to further strenghten the initiative by promoting an active participation of all AMIS countries and ensuring the initiative's financial sustainability.

The AMIS Secretariat congratulates Canada for being elected as the new Chair and looks forward to a fruitful collaboration.
