The Inaugural Session of the 70th Plenary Meeting of the ICAC will be held on September 5, 2011 in the Panamericano Hotel in Buenos Aires. The 70th Plenary Meeting will focus on the roles of governments and the private sector in ensuring growth and the achievement of social objectives.

Between the Inaugural and Closing Sessions there will be a total of 16 open, plenary and breakout sessions, plus a series of parallel sessions and side meetings of technical groups and specialized panels. The meeting will include six open sessions on topics related to strengthening the cotton value chain, two plenary sessions focused on policy matters, including the Doha Round, and five breakout sessions on technical topics. The 70th Plenary Meeting will also serve as a basis for better coordination among Latin American countries on the control of the boll weevil.

Participants in the 70th Plenary Meeting of the International Cotton Advisory Committee will have a unique opportunity to view the cotton value chain and links between research and production. The Government of Argentina, in cooperation with the provincial government of Chaco, is arranging complimentary travel from Buenos Aires to the cities of Sáenz Peña and Resistencia on Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10.
