SUVA, Fiji (April 26, 1998 - PACNEWS)---Pacific Community (SPC) agricultural officials will meet in Guam, April 27 - May 1, for the 13th Conference of Permanent Heads of Agriculture and Livestock Production Services (PHALPS).

The theme of this year's meeting is "Quality Management," an area which is becoming increasingly important to the region's emerging agricultural economies.

Sponsored by the Secretariat of the SPC and the government of Guam, this year's conference will provide an opportunity for island agricultural officials to meet with representatives of donor agencies and international and regional organizations.

PHALPS officials also will review the SPC Agriculture Program activities over the last two years and provide input for the direction the program should takes in the next three years. At present, the program is managing 20 regional projects.
