Singapoire — India has been elected as the new Chairman of the International Rubber Study Group (IRSG). The decision was made unanimously in the meeting of the Heads of Delegations (HOD) held at Singapore on 14 July 2011. Head of the Indian delegation to IRSG, Mrs. Sheela Thomas, Chairman of the Indian Rubber Board, will officiate as the Chairman of IRSG representing India. She will remain as the Chairman of the Group for the next two years.
The EU was elected as the new Vice-Chairman for the next two years.
Another major development in the meeting was the adoption of a revised constitution for IRSG. The organisation took the opportunity of the move from London to Singapore to re-visit its constitution. It has taken some time for all parties to agree a final text, but this was confirmed at the meeting.
The HOD also took several decisions to move the Group forward and make it more useful to rubber industry stakeholders. One of the important decisions was to organise the World Rubber Summit as a mega event in Singapore during the next three years on an annual basis. The Summit scheduled to be held in May 2012 would be organised by IRSG in association with International Enterprise, Singapore. The rubber industry stakeholders would have opportunity to be co-sponsors.
The next meeting of the HOD will be held in Singapore in May 2012 in conjunction with the World Rubber Summit.
The meeting was part of the 107th Group Meetings of IRSG held from 11 to 14 July 2011. The position of Chairman became vacant as Cote’ d Ivoire completed two years as Chairman.
