Markets and Trade

Intergovernmental Group on Citrus

The FAO Intergovernmental Group (IGG) on Citrus Fruit represents a forum for intergovernmental consultation and exchange on trends in production, consumption, trade and prices of citrus fruit, including regular appraisal of the global market situation and short term outlook. The Group, under FAO auspices, considers changes in national policies and examines their international effects as they pertain to current and prospective markets.

Increasingly, technical side events are organized in conjunction with the IGG to facilitate a dialogue between FAO delegates, international policy makers, and the private sector. Linkages with other international organizations and commodity bodies are encouraged.

Membership in the Group is open to all Member Nations and Associate Members of FAO, including Observers from international organizations and institutions. Nearly all importing and exporting countries of citrus fruit are members of the IGG.
