Abstract

The author attended the meetings at which delegates from different producing and consuming countries participated. Presentations were given on aspects of production and trade, as well as more technical issues. A large part of the agenda was devoted to considering how the Sub-Group would operate in the future. The author endeavoured to raise the important question of what policy focus the new group would have. In doing so, the author proposed a five-point mission statement reflecting the importance of production and trade issues, sustainable economic and social livelihoods, poverty alleviation, human resource development and environmental considerations. Commitments were received to adopt these points by the Sub-Group and the Tropical Fruit Network (which was set up as part of the Sub-Group). The Common Fund for Commodities also supported this policy focus. A whole set of background papers, which were issued at the meetings, is included with this report.
