Towards enhancing international cooperation to boost the global olive sector
A courtesy meeting took place on Wednesday, July 3, at the International Olive Council’s (IOC) headquarters in Madrid between Jaime Lillo, Executive Director of the IOC, and Ibrahim Adam Ahmed-El-Dukhari, Director General of the Arab Organization for Agricultural Development (AOAD), an entity operating under the umbrella of the League of Arab States.
Both officials underscored the importance of cooperation between their two organizations to develop a collaboration program in the field of olive growing. This impulse is particularly timely considering the recent establishment in Tunis (Tunisia) of an international office in charge of the olive sector in the Arab world.
The meeting, which was also attended by Abderraouf Laajimi, the IOC’s new Deputy Executive Director in charge of operational affairs, provided an opportunity to discuss future possibilities and activities for cooperation between the two organizations to support the olive sector in Arab countries and globally.
The Arab Organization for Agricultural Development (AOAD) operates within the framework of the League of Arab States to create innovative, harmonious, competitive and sustainable Arab agricultural sectors, strengthen food and nutritional security, and contribute to the eradication of poverty.
