Earlier in the year the EAAFP Management Committee and the Australian Government agreed to reassess in October, the potential impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic on the planned EAAFP 11th Meeting of Partners (MoP11) in March 2021.
Following communication with the Australian Government and discussions at the EAAFP Management Committee meeting held last week, regarding the timing of EAAFP 11th Meeting of Partners (MoP11), the following decision has been taken:
