22 October 2015 – A delegation of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) led by Secretary Jingyuan Xia met with a delegation of senior officials from CABI led by CABI CEO, Dr Trevor Nicholls, on 22 October. During the meeting the two parties drafted a letter of intent with specific goals for the future which, once reviewed and finalized, should lay the foundation for a future programme 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.
