A trip report is now available for Gary’s travel to Geneva, Switzerland to support NAEGA 2017 and 2018 UES objectives largely executed via the IGTC. In Geneva, Gary reported on and received recommendations for IGTC actions to address facilitation of trade with China, to consider parameters for the establishment of new commercial and official practices related to information management and implementation of regulations and to explore options for modification of the IGTC business plan. These included meetings to advance IGTC priorities and developments at the global level, including:
- The digitization of trading documentation;
- The IPPC International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures for grain;
- The endorsement of the Global Low-Level Presence Initiative (GLI);
- The IGTC’s position on MRLs.
