Council Decision of 15 July 2019 establishing the position to be taken on behalf of the Union regarding the extension of the International Sugar Agreement 1992 for a further period of up to 2 years.
The International Sugar Agreement entered into force on 1 January 1993 for a period of three years until 31 December 1995. Since then it has been regularly extended for further periods of two years. The Agreement was last extended by decision of the International Sugar Council in November 2017 and remains in force until 31 December 2019.
The purpose of this Decision is to authorise the European Commission to vote, within the International Sugar Council, in favour of the extension of the Agreement up to 31 December 2021.
The International Sugar Agreement 1992 aims to ensure enhanced international cooperation in connection with world sugar matters and related issues, provide a forum for intergovernmental consultations on sugar and on ways to improve the world sugar economy, to facilitate trade by collecting and providing information on the world sugar market and other sweeteners and to encourage increased demand for sugar, particularly for non-traditional uses.
