DG of OIE to speak at IEC Conference

The Director General of the OIE, the World Organisation for Animal Health, will be attending the International Egg Commission (IEC) conference being held in Paris next month.

Dr Bernard Vallat will be one of the conference’s key speakers. He will present to IEC delegates on the subject of how the OIE and the international egg industry can work together to help to secure future success.

“We are delighted that Dr Vallat is able to join us in Paris for the IEC Conference,” said IEC Chairman, Frank Pace. “The World Organisation for Animal Health is the intergovernmental organisation responsible for improving animal health worldwide, and Dr Vallat is one of the most influential people in the egg industry in terms of setting standards; he is one of the key decision makers for salmonella, avian influenza and animal welfare issues. Our conference in Paris, from 11 to 13 April, offers a fantastic opportunity for members of the egg industry to meet with Dr Vallat, and to hear his thoughts and suggestions on how the OIE and our industry can best work together in the future.”
