The 87th General Session of the World Assembly of National Delegates of the OIE will be held from 26 to 31 May 2019, bringing together representatives of 182 OIE Members and observers from international organisations that have signed an official agreement with the OIE, as well as other international and regional organisations and invited guests.
The OIE General Session will be held at the “Maison de la Chimie” from Sunday 26 to Friday 31 May 2019 (Friday’s session is exclusively for the OIE Delegates, as it concerns administrative and financial matters).
The World Assembly of OIE Delegates will examine several texts, with a view to adopt, a number of new intergovernmental standards covering animal disease control methods, including those for controlling diseases transmissible to humans, the safety of international trade in animals and animal products, as well as animal welfare. The progress of the implementation of the 6th Strategic Plan (2016-2020) will also be presented.
The opening session of the World Assembly of OIE Delegates is always a special event owing to the presence of important personalities from around the world. In addition to the President of the World Assembly of OIE Delegates and the Director General of OIE, addresses will be made in particular by high level authorities of several OIE Members.
The following technical item will be presented:
“How external factors (e.g. climate change, conflicts, socio-economics, trading patterns) will impact Veterinary Services, and the adaptations required.”
