International Year of Pulses One Step Closer

With grateful thanks to the Turkish and Pakistan Governments who proposed the resolution and the representatives of 47 other country governments who form FAO Council, we are very pleased to announce that Council approved unanimously the first of 3 steps towards the declaration of 2016 as UN International Year of Pulses, to follow the Year of Soil in 2015. The process continues at the FAO conference in Rome this June and then onto New York and the General Assembly.

Congratulations to the International Pulse and Trade Confederation.
