Icafé Presses Assembly for Approval of ICO Agreement

The 2007 International Coffee Agreement regulates the relationship between ICO member countries.

Monday, July 20, 2009

The Costa Rican Coffe Insitute, known in Spanish as Icafé, requested the Legislative Assembly to approve as soon as possible the International Coffee Agreement 2007, from the International Coffee Organization. September 2009 is the deadline for Costa Rican approval of the document.

"Ratification of this agreement by the Assembly will generate many benefits for the coffee sector", published Prensalibre.co.cr, "because it will consolidate the role of the International Coffee Organization as a forum for inter governmental inquires, and as a center for the gathering, revelation and publication of economic and technical information, stats and studies and coffee R&D. This will foster its members to engage in sustainable coffee production, benefiting all those related to coffee production."
