The 18th Session of the FAO/WHO Coordinating Committee for Asia (CCASIA) was held on 5-9 November 2012 in Tokyo, Japan.
The Committee was attended by 83 delegates from 20 Asian Member countries, 3 Member countries outside the Region, 9 international organisations and representatives of FAO and WHO.
Thanks to active and constructive participation by all the attendants, the Committee achieved a big and historical progress on many issues; namely, on discussion on regional standards for tempe and for non-fermented soybean products.
The Committee also showed its great interests in some issues, including development of a new Regional Strategic Plan for CCASIA, establishment of a new committee on spices, and development of code of hygienic practice for street-vended foods.
Japan is greatly honored to be nominated as the Asian Coordinator for its second term.
Japan will continue to work as the Asian Coordinator to facilitate coordination of Codex activities among Member countries in the region, and to organize coordinating meetings for CCASIA Members prior to Codex sessions to facilitate discussion and development of regional positions on issues of mutual interest.
Japan, as the Asian Coordinator, welcomes your active participation in the activities of CCASIA.
