Excerpt
1. INTRODUCTION The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) convened an Expert Consultation on Risk Assessment of Microbiological Hazards in Food, in Geneva, Switzerland, from 15 to 19 March 1999. The list of participants is presented in Annex I . Mrs Poonam Khetrapal Singh, Executive Director of the Sustainable Development and Healthy Environments Cluster in WHO, opened the Consultation on behalf of the Director-General of WHO. In welcoming the participants, Mrs Khetrapal Singh stated that present-day international trade in food plays an increasingly important role in the provision of safe and nutritious diets for the world's populations. She noted that international trade has a twofold benefit. Trade in food introduces a greater variety of foods into the diet, providing consumers with a wider choice of products. Food trade also provides food exporting countries with foreign exchange. International food trade is indispensable for the economic development of many countries, and thus for an improvement in the standard of living for many peoples.
