Two new members formally joined the Board of Trustees: Dr Walid Tawil, host country representative and Director General of the General Commission for Scientific Agricultural Research, Syria; and Dr Mona Bishay, head of IFAD’s Near East and North Africa Division, from Egypt. Two others attended the meeting as observers and will join the Board next year. They are Dr Carl-Gustaf Thornstrom from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, and Mr Fawzi Sultan, from Kuwait, former President of IFAD. Four members left the Board, having completed their terms: Dr Mohamed Zehni, Vice-Chair; Dr David Sammons, Chair, Program Committee; Dr Kjersti Larsen, Chair, Nominations Committee; and Dr Aigul Abugalieva. The Board noted the excellent contributions they had all made during their tenure.
