Delegates of the ISF World Seed Congress 2014 gathered in Beijing, China to elect new leadership and adopt new positions.

The General Assembly unanimously elected Alvaro Eyzaguirre from Chile as ISF President. Alvaro was the first South American to hold this two-year post.

During his acceptance speech he outlined the need for strong collaboration between the seed industry, farmers, governments, NGOs and universities to respond to the challenges of increasing food production and climate change.

The General Assembly approved the position paper on the implementation of national policies for low-level presence (LLP) which highlights the importance of science-based, practical and transparent LLP policies.
