History

9 Jan 1984, Dhaka (Bangladesh), to implement provisions of International Agreement on Jute and Jute Products, 1982 and subsequently of International Agreement on Jute and Jute Products, 1989, whose duration was extended to 11 Apr 2000. Negotiations for a new International Instrument on Cooperation on Jute and Jute Products, 2000 took place 27-31 Mar 2000, Geneva (Switzerland), and at the United Nations Conference on Jute and Jute Products, 6-8 Apr 2001, Dhaka. Ceased to exist following liquidation period 12 Apr 2000 to 11 Oct 2001, after expiry of the 1989 Agreement and the inability of the European Union to endorse the International Instrument of Cooperation adopted by the 2001 Dhaka conference. Work is continued by International Jute Study Group (IJSG).

Aims

Provide an effective framework for cooperation and consultation between the jute exporting and importing countries for the development of the jute economy; improve structural conditions in the jute market; increase the competitiveness and quality of jute and jute products; expand global trade in jute and jute products, upholding jute's positive environmental aspects.
