John Dalli, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer Policy, and Sabine Laruelle, Acting Belgian Minister for SMEs, the Self-Employed, Agriculture and Scientific Policy and President in office of the Council of the EU, participated in the conference on the revision of the EU phytosanitary legislation, which had been assessed by the Food Chain Evaluation Consortium (FCEC) consortium to assess the food chain (CCF) mandated by the EC. After the conference, they visited the tree nursery called "Boomkwekerij Van Goidsenhoven", in Holsbeek, in Flemish Brabant, where they attended a demonstration of the protective measures against the introduction of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Union.
