Earlier this month, an ICARDA delegation visited national decision makers in Syria: H.E. Dr Adel Safar, Minister of Agriculture and Agrarian Reform and H.E. Dr Amer Husni Lutfi, President of the State Planning Commission. The delegation comprised Dr Henri Carsalade, Chair of ICARDA’s Board of Trustees; Dr Mahmoud Solh, Director General; and Dr Majd Jamal, Assistant Director General for Government Liaison. This was Dr Carsalade’s first official visit to the Ministry after taking over as Board Chair in January.

Dr Safar and Dr Lutfi were briefed about progress and future plans of the joint
Syria-ICARDA research program. They both emphasized that the Syrian government was fully committed to maintaining and expanding this partnership.
