An IPPC delegation led by Secretary Jingyuan Xia met with a delegation of senior officials from CAB International led by CABI CEO Trevor Nicholls on Thursday, October 22.
During the meeting the two parties drafted a letter of intent with some specific goals for the future which, once reviewed and finalized, should lay the foundation for a future program of work aimed at enhancing awareness of both organizations and the importance of plant health and protection. Among other things, the two organizations hope to participate in joint Plantwise/IPPC workshops and cooperate on the promotion of an international year of plant health.
