4th extraordinary session of the Council of Members of the International Olive Council

The Council of Members of the International Olive Council held its 14th extraordinary session at its headquarters in Madrid from 8 to 11 July 2008. Discussions were chaired by Israel.

The first day of the session focused on the future action of this intergovernmental organisation. A Discussion Group met to determine the special-interest topics and priorities for IOC activities after 2010. Besides the members of the Group, the meeting was also attended by the Heads of Delegation participating in the 14th extraordinary session and the Chairman and Vice-Chairmen of the IOC Advisory Committee.

The Discussion Group agreed on the need to strengthen the cooperative ties between the Advisory Group and the Council and to ensure a continuous flow of communication between the two by making the committee more dynamic and involving it in the work of the IOC Technical, Economic and Promotion Committees, so putting into practice the provisions of the current 2005 International Agreement on Olive Oil and Table Olives.
