*Joint Advisory Group

The annual meeting of ITC, the Joint Advisory Group (JAG), was held in Geneva from 8 to 11 November. A total of 151 representatives of 76 countries attended, along with representatives of 10 international organizations with which ITC works in its technical cooperation programme.

Ambassador Johan Frederik Boddens-Hosang of the Netherlands was elected Chairman of the JAG; Mr. Daniel Kwasi Abodakpi of Ghana and Mr. Gonzalo Gutierrez of Peru, Vice-Chairmen; and Mr. Toshio Tsunozaki of Japan, Rapporteur.

Mr. Raju Makil, Officer-in-Charge of ITC, gave an overview of ITC's work during the past year and mentioned new areas of emphasis in its programme. In addition to a review of the organization's activities in 1992, the JAG considered independent evaluation reports on two aspects of ITC's technical cooperation programme, i.e. institutional infrastructure for trade promotion at the national level and commodity trade, development and promotion.

The report of the JAG session will be considered by the GATT Council and the Trade and Development Board of UNCTAD in the coming months.

*Import promotion offices

Representatives of 15 national import promotion offices (IPOs) attended the annual meeting of IPO Directors organized by ITC in Geneva from 20 to 22 October. As in previous years, participants discussed trade promotion activities that their respective organizations undertake with developing countries, as well as ways in which ITC and these offices can cooperate in their work.

*Chambers of commerce

Under financing from the Government of Germany, a seminar was held for chamber of commerce officials of developing countries on technical services that chambers located in a port city can provide to their members. The event, which took place from 15 to 26 November in Hamburg, Kiel and Bremen, was organized by ITC in cooperation with the International Bureau of Chambers of Commerce (IBCC) of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the German Association of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHT). Fourteen chamber officials attended from African, Asian and east European countries, including three least developed countries. The counterparts for the programmes were the local chambers and the port authorities in the three German cities.

Participants also had an opportunity to see modem cargo-handling and document-processing techniques at the ports.

*Citrus fruit

One of ITC's market development advisers took part in the tenth session of the Intergovernmental Group on Citrus Fruit of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Albufeira, Portugal from 11 to 15 October. He presented a paper on the world market for fruit juices, in particular citrus and tropical juices, including market opportunities for these products in selected east European markets.

As a continuation of previous activities, ITC recently carried out two rounds of dissemination seminars and consultations in developing countries that export fruit juices and pulp or have potential to do so. The first series took place in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana and Swaziland, and the second in Dominica, Dominican Republic, Bolivia and Peru. These activities were financed by the Government of Norway.

*Tea promotion

The Common Fund for Commodities recently announced its approval of partial funding for a major project to stimulate demand for tea through a health-based generic promotional campaign. The project was proposed by the Intergovernmental Group on Tea, which had been advised by ITC on the formulation of the trade promotion aspects of the proposal. The project will receive substantial co-funding from the tea industry worldwide and will be implemented by the U.K. Tea Council, with possible technical support from several UN organizations.

*Coffee marketing

Following the publication of the French and Spanish versions of Coffee: An Exporter's Guide, ITC recently began dissemination activities for exporters in French-speaking African countries. …
