At the World Trade Organizationís Sixth Ministerial Conference in Hong Kong in December 2005, the Committee on Trade and Development (CTD) was instructed, within its mandate, to intensify its work on commodity issues in cooperation with other relevant international organizations and to report regularly to the WTO's General Council with possible recommendations. In this context, the Committee agreed on 3 March 2006 to invite the ICO to make a presentation. In response to this request the Head of Operations, Mr. Pablo Dubois, made a presentation on the characteristics of the coffee market and the work of the ICO at a meeting of the CTD on 11 May 2006.Further Information (PDF File)

1 October is #InternationalCoffeeDay.
This year we have chosen a very special theme for this year’s celebrations: ‘Women in Coffee’. Women play as important a role in the whole of the coffee chain as men, from planting the seeds to processing to trading to brewing… and drinking it. To find out more visit the dedicated International Coffee Day website.
