The Council established an Open-ended Working Group which elected Mr Thomas A. Forbord United States of America and Ambassador Salah Hamdi (Tunisia) as Chairman and Vice-Chairman, respectively.

The Council requested the Director-General to circulate to all Members of the Organization the Draft Declaration as approved by the Council as soon as possible, requesting any FAO Members who wished to provide comments to do so in writing to the Director-General by Friday 7 July 1995.

This would be placed for approval before Ministers at the Fiftieth Anniversary Observance on 16 October 1995, World Food Day, in Quebec City. The approved text would be submitted for final adoption to the Twenty-eighth Session of the FAO Conference in Rome in October 1995.
