IFFO Director to participate in Global Fishery Forum & Seafood Expo in Russia
Thursday, September 14, 2017
At the upcoming Global Fishery Forum & Seafood Expo in St. Petersburg, Russia, IFFO’s Director General Andrew Mallison will participate in two panel sessions and act as moderator for one of the two plenary sessions.
The aim of the forum, taking place September 14-16, is to identify main trends in the development of the modern world fish market, promote the expansion of trade and economic relations and scientific cooperation. A strategy for the development of Russia’s fishing industry and export/import policies will also be discussed, making this a good opportunity to raise the profile of the marine ingredients industry, and IFFO, in Russia.
IFFO’s Andrew Mallison will moderate the first day plenary session debate between several prominent Russian and international politicians and business interests. He will then participate in a roundtable panel session titled ‘Protectionism amidst Globalization of the Fish Industry’ along speakers from the FAO, national fisheries groups and global companies such as McDonalds, presenting an overview of the marine ingredients industry. The panel will discuss current and future global trends, the effectiveness of free trade agreements and positive experiences and obstacles encountered by fishery companies in international trade.
Following the panel on market opportunities, Mallison will also present in a panel on certification, discussing the benefits and challenges of certification schemes with reference to the IFFO Responsible Supply standard.
