BOARD FOR INTERNATIONAL FOOD & AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT 6 160th Meeting 7 October 12, 2010 8 Des Moines, Iowa

I would like to call the 160th meeting of the Board of International Food and Agricultural Development to order. It is very pleasing -- it is a pleasure for the board to be holding this meeting at the same time around the World Food Prize in recognition of those who made enormous contributions in our area of interest: The world's food and agricultural system.
