International Olive Council: appointments on the calendar
June 2021: Advisory Committee on 22; meeting of the members of the Board, on 28 and 30
The countdown has begun for the next meeting of the Consultative Committee of the IOC (International Olive Council), which has not been able to meet since the pandemic began over a year ago. The meeting will take place remotely over a full day on June 22, 2021, and representatives of the world olive oil industry will virtually meet to take stock of the olive sector. The Consultative Committee for Olive Oil and Table Olives is a key interlocutor for the members of the Council. Its representatives come from all branches of the olive sector - producers, processors, traders and consumers with equal evaluative weight - and from all member countries of the IOC.
The Committee was set up to express the views of business circles and to draw on their practical knowledge, in order to assist the Executive Secretariat in finding effective solutions to the problems that arise and to keep the pulse of the sector.
The meeting will precede the 113th session of the meeting of the members of the Council, which will take place on 28 and 30 June next. Once again the work will continue via the web, starting from the meeting of the Administrative and Financial Affairs Commission on 28 June, and will end with the Plenary Session on 30 June, which will be chaired by Georgia under the rotating presidency.
The Council of Members governs the IOC as its main decision-making body. It meets at least twice a year to review the work done by the Organization, and to approve its program of activities and budget for the following year. The work of the Council is assisted by simultaneous translation into the five official languages of the IOC, namely Arabic, English, French, Italian and Spanish.
