Mr Nico van Opstal (the Netherlands), President of the Association, specified the importance for the attachés in charge of agricultural issues to better understand international organisations and that it was necessary to develop this type of direct relationship.

Mr Jean-Marie Aurand, who has been assigned to Madrid as an agricultural attaché during his career, emphasised the relay work carried out by the ambassadors in addition to their role in promoting the viticultural realities of their country. He indicated that he wished for this initiative to be updated and expanded.
