Argentina elected as next AMIS Chair

01 Mar 2017

Argentina will be the next Chair of AMIS, taking over from Germany at the end of the forthcoming meeting of the Global Food Market Information Group in June 2017. The country was elected at the 6th Session of the AMIS Rapid Response Forum held earlier this week at the German Ministry of Food and Agriculture in Berlin.

Argentina highlighted the important contribution of AMIS in enhancing food market transparency and policy coordination. Building on past achievements over the first five years since AMIS was created, Argentina will try to further strengthen the initiative and ensure that all AMIS participants actively support the Secretariat in providing timely market information and analysis.
