I was pleased to officially launch the National Research Group on the impacts of food quality on human health held today at the Conference Hall of the Cyber Tower 1, Ebene. In today’s workshop the Technical committee on Impacts of Food Quality on Human Health presented the situational analysis on a range of topics including food norms and regulations, sustainable agriculture, health issues and monitoring of food safety. The outcome of the workshop will be the elaboration of a national research agenda for a better health and food quality. I wish them all the best for their deliberations and discussions.
