The International Coffee Organization hopes to have developed recommendations on a new International Coffee Agreement (ICA) by September 2019.
The International Coffee Council at the ICO has decided to form a working group with a mandate to examine the current agreement and proposals submitted by members, or other invited parties. The Working Group will then submit recommendations to the Council. The Working Group is open to all members of the ICO and the Council is planning to appoint a Chair and Vice-Chair of the group.
The Working Group is to hold its first meeting as soon as possible, with the aim of submitting its recommendations to the Council at its session in September 2019.
