27 May 2020
In consideration of the world health situation with regard to the current outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the 88th General Session of the World Assembly of OIE Delegates will be organized over a single day – Wednesday May 27th, 2020 – with an agenda limited to administrative and institutional matters.
This decision, taken on an exceptional basis in application of Article 39 of the General Rules, is supported by the need to ensure the institutional functioning of the Organisation.
For the mentioned reasons, the access to the 88th General Session will be restricted to OIE Delegates and Accredited Delegates only.
The presentation of the technical item “The Required competencies of Veterinary Services in the context of international trade: opportunities and challenges”, of the activities of the OIE Specialist Commissions, as well as the presentation of the world health situation, will be made available on the 88th General Session website in a later stage.
