In this connexion we also agree that an international grains agreement should be concluded soon, and that the objectives and main elements of the international undertaking on world food security should be appropriately reflected in the provisions of the agreement.
The Director-General should be requested to bring the proposals on specific policy provisions submitted by the Group of 77 to the attention of the preparatory group of the International Food Council for appropriate consideration. In the light of our statement on the world food situation on agenda item 4, in particular with reference to rice, my delegation fully supports the request of the meeting that the Secretariat analyses the long term implications of the past rates of growth in rice production, which have been considerably lower than for wheat, on the food security situation of rice consuming countries, in particular the Far East, and suggests steps needed to remedy the situation in conjunction with other bodies.
To make food security effective, as a first step it is necessary that the undertaking be fully implemented by member countries, and in this regard all countries should, by the end of , define and adopt national stock policies in conformity with the guidelines of the Undertaking. The Committee was assigned by the FAO Conference to assess the efficacy of stocks needed to meet the objectives of world food security.
The Secretariat, after elaborate and comprehensive preparation, suggested that in order to maintain world consumption of cereals in one year, in around 95 percent of the cases the minimum safe level of carryover stocks of cereals would need to be within a range of 17 to 18 percent of world consumption. My delegation appreciates the efforts made by the Committee to come to a consensus on the figure for the minimum safe level of food for world food security.
We therefore underline the outcome that they, pending further explanation, agree with the Secretariat's figures as a reasonable basis for this assessment. Finally, we also agree on the need to develop the national resources in support of food security in developing countries with a view to strengthening their self-reliance in food production and food security with the ultimate objections of obviating their dependence on external food assistance in accordance with national plans and priorities.
We have already expressed our views on the issues relating to providing expanded external assistance to agriculture in the developing countries, which according to the views of the Secretariat, appears to have declined in as compared to the previous year. For improving the World Food Security, the Council should strongly support the provision of food aid and financial resources not only for meeting current consumption requirements, but also for helping developing countries to build up and maintain stocks, and to create storage capacity.
Unless these countries have their own stocks which can be used for meeting emergencies at short notice, the food position of these countries will continue to remain highly vulnerable to natural hazards and disasters. The Indian delegation would therefore urge that che donor countries and the concerned international and regional organizations should take steps to provide the necessary food, financial and technical assistance in the form of grants and on specially favourable and soft terms to develop and implement national policies and to build and maintain food reserves in developing countries, including storage and transport facilities.
An important point on which we have some satisfaction is that the Food Aid Committee has, pending further examination, accepted the Secretariat statement that the estimated figure of 17 - 18 percent of the world consumption as the minimum safe level of carryover stocks in a reasonable basis for future assessment.
The figure of 17 - 18 percent consists of 5 - 6 percent as a reserve element, the rest being working stocks. The Council should endorse these figures, and ask for their adoption by the Committee on World Food Security and other international agencies for the purpose of making further assessments. My delegation would urge that the Director-General may be requested to forward the proposals made in the statement by the Group of 77 to the International Wheat Council.
In particular, the International Wheat Council should be requested to implement the recommendation made by the Committee on World Food Security that the objectives and main elements of the International Undertaking on World Food Security should be appropriately reflected in the provisions of the new International Grains Agreement, which should also pay particular attention to safeguarding the special interests of developing countries, and all efforts should be made by the concerned Governments to conclude the discussions and negotiations of a new International Grains Agreement before the expiry of the current extension of this agreement.
We would urge that the new International Grains Agreement as recommended by the Committee on World Food Security should be concentrating on building up food stocks appropriate for ensuring food security as well as price and supply stability. We also fully share the view of the Committee on World Food Security that there is urgent need for an international agreement which should envisage the building up of reserve stocks, not merely for ensuring food security, but also for ensuring price and supply stability.
The maintenance of price stability is very vital and of crucial importance for ensuring the level of production and level of supplies, particularly on the part of food-exporting countries, so that supplies are not ir any way slackened and there is not merely stability in the availability of food grains but also stability of prices for the benefit of the growers as well as of the consumers. FOUAD Egypt interpretation from Arabic : First I should like to say that the question of World Food Security has often been discussed by the Committee which deals with this problem and by the World Food Conference, but given the practical nature and the importance of this problem, particularly as far as it concerns developing countries, and given the development of agriculture during the last few years and the possibilities of meeting World Food Security, I should like to say once again that there are some subjects which have not benefited from agreement form all interested parties.
The first point concerning increase in agricultural production in developing countries concerns funds which have been allocated by the Secretariat of the Organization and by the World Food Conference. Although there has not been an agreement on this question, we think that it should be reviewed in more detail.
The second point concerns the minimum of 10 million tons of cereals established by the World Food Council. This aid reached a figure of eight million during last year whereas during preceding years a higher level was reached, namely fourteen million tons.
That aid should continue and intensify given the population growth in the world today. The third point concerns emergency stocks. The quantity laid down for these stocks, namely tons, has not yet been reached. The fourth point concerns world stocks. We have estimated these at being percent of world consumption and we have not reached that level, unfortunately. The last point concerns some partial objectives - for instance in fertilizers. We note with satisfaction the progress achieved in the early warning system and decisions taken by various governments on stocks. At this stage I should like to repeat our support for the statement made by the Group of 77 contained in the report of the Committee on World Food Security requesting governments to guarantee world food security.
In our view the good crops of the last two years and the considerably improved stock position make it possible to so improve world food security that the food crisis of the years could not repeat itself in the future. We fully support the view that the objectives of the FAO International Undertaking on World Food Security should as far as possible be taken into account in the formulation of the new International Grains Agreement. Therefore, we note with satisfaction that the proposal for a reserve stock scheme is under discussion in the preparatory group of the International Wheat Council.
My delegation also supports the proposal that a new food aid convention should be an integral part of the new Grains Agreement. I should also like to draw attention to the important recommendation of the First Session of the Committee on World Food Security to the effect that all countries should define and adopt national grain stock policies and targets or objectives and modify them as required in order to conform with the FAO Undertaking.
So far as my country is concerned for many years we have applied a defined national stock policy which includes an obligatory stock target of food grains, corresponding to approximately seven months' domestic consumption. When developing our policy in the future we will fully take into account the requirements of the FAO Undertaking. The subject of world food security is, in our view, a vital subject of continuing importance to every nation, one that needs our very best efforts not only in that particular Committee but in all the international fora which deal with matters of food, food supplies and food nutrition.
We regret that some countries, including some major trading nations, have not yet seen fit to subscribe. We hope that they soon will be in a position to do so. The United States is prepared, as we said at the Committee on World Food Security, to work with other nations to narrow differences on major issues and develop a new international agreement to succeed the present International Wheat Agreement.
We hope that these efforts can meet with eventual success and can lead to the early establishment of a reserves agreement and negotiation on a renewed food aid convention. As many delegates know, the United States has already taken action to establish national reserves of wheat and rice. The stocks will be held on farms under a programme of 3-year extended loans for the crop. The programme has specific provisions related to price movements for the release of reserves so that they will be held when they should be held and will be released if changes in circumstances warrant.
We view this programme as a stabilizing influence at home and abroad and see it as supportive of the efforts of the International Wheat Council to develop an international system of nationally held grain reserves. On a closely related manner I should like to draw attention to the fact that the United States has announced its readiness to contribute up to tons of food aid,in concert with other donors, towards the ton international emergency reserve called for by the Seventh Special Session of the United Nations General Assembly.
We feel that this emergency reserve can in the short runmeet important food aid requirements. At the same time, we place paramount emphasis on the speedy implementation of an international system of nationally held grain reserves as the basis for broader world food security. The United States is proud to have a part in the agreed recommendation and is ready to do its share. Those are some of the recent concrete actions taken by my country in support of the objectives in the struggle towards world food security. They are evidence of our willingness to cooperate with other nations in seeking a common goal.
For it is only through international cooperation that the goal of world food security can be achieved. The point was not raised in earlier discussions and we should make it clear that the corrigendum is now part" of the record. Secondly, may I say that we in the United Kingdom delegation have read this report with great interest and in particular we endorse the review of the current situation set out in paragraph The major outlook is, as we see it, very much in line with the Committee's views. Thirdly, we support very strongly the development of the global early warning system. This is very effective and very valuable and helps to meet the needs of those developing countries in most particular-need of assistance in planning their future and in dealing with the problems they face.
Lastly, we also feel that this valuable document should go to the ministerial meeting of the World Food Council in Manila as is the view of other delegates. SHEFRIN Canada : In listening to the discussion on food security I believe we should bring a note of balance into the discussion because if our understanding is correct, when we discussed food security we discussed two aspects, the question of increased production in the countries that need the food and also the question of stockpiling or storing food and having reserves.
During this morning's discussion there has been no reference to that first and most important part the question of increased production. You cannot establish stocks, even if you receive aid for a number of years, if you do not increase production. That point has not been discussed adequately so far it seems to us. We have also heard several appeals by a number of speakers that more should be done to finance the building of stocks. We are certainly in agreement with those appeals. The tendency, however, has been to refer to wheat-producing or wheat-exporting countries and that is a very limited approach.
There are many other countries which are not wheat producers or wheat exporters, which can also assist in the building of stocks in developing countries and I suggest to our friends that they should also think of those countries which are not necessarily the ones which are exporting wheat or are large-scale wheat producers.
Many of them are very important importers and others are producers of other commodities which bring in substantial revenues. I hope therefore that there will be a more balanced approach to these requests. So far as Canada is concerned, we are at present carrying a very large stockpile of wheat.
Our production has increased in line with the appeals made for more wheat. At the same time we are providing as a form of aid one million tons of wheat per year in line with the World Food Conference Resolution. But it costs money to carry such large stocks. Nobody talks about the cost of carrying them at a time when the price of wheat is low and our producers are faced with the problem of having to carry stocks on the farms and of also receiving low wheat prices. So when we talk about this subject we should maintain a balance in what we are asking. At the same time, Canada is very active in the negotiations for a new international wheat arrangement and certainly this is an area where we will be looking very carefully at the concept of establishing stocks.
However, if any conclusions are to come out of this meeting it would be advisable to look at paragraphs 21 to 23 of our Report of the Second Session of the Committee on World Food Security, especially in relation to the aspect of targets. There was no agreement of the figure of percent. There was a compromise statement which said in effect that it should be considered that that estimate provided a reasonable basis for assessment but it would carry no particular commitment as to the desirable level of stocks in an International Grains Agreement.
Our delegation had argued in the Second Session that we did not know what the figure should be. We are carrying far more than 17 percent already. We urge caution therefore and I hope that the Council will not go beyond this sense of compromise which was carefully worked out in the Report. We also made the proposal in the Committee on World Food Security that this Report should be submitted to the World Food Council which will be meeting in Manila at the end of this month.
Of course, in our updating statement we took into account events which took place between the two sessions of the Committee on World Food Security.

As is made clear in the report now before us, the developing countries in their joint statement laid special emphasis on a number of points. I will just very briefly refer to some of them; I do not believe I need to go on extensively since the report explains our views quite clearly. On the question of the minimum safe level of carry-over stocks, I must say we were happy to see that for future assessments the Committee on World Food Security found it possible to agree with the definition of minimum safe level of carry-over stocks on the basis of percent of annual consumption, out of which 5 percent to 6 percent as reserve stocks.
We understand that the acceptance of this figure for future assessment was a positive step taken by the Committee on World Food Security. Secondly, we attach special importance to the attainment of the target of 10 million tons a year of grains as food aid; the fact that in this figure was not reached, and that the prospects for do not look too bright, of course give us concern. We expressed our concern at the session of the Committee on Food Security and we repeat our concern here.
The other target relevant in this case relates to the emergency food reserve within the World Food Programme, of tons of grains while some progress occurred after the Session of the Committee of World Food Security, at the Committee on Food Aid, when additional pledges were announced, the target of tons has still not been reached and, in fact, we have not even reached 50 percent of that specific target.
In our joint statement at the time of the Committee on Food Security we also laid particular emphasis on the early conclusion of the new International Grains Agreement. Moreover, we also placed special emphasis on a number of clauses and provisions which we think are very important for inclusion in this new International Grains Agreement.
Another point on which we laid emphasis in the overall question of food security ia the question of aid to build and maintain reserves: aid in the form of food aid, technical aid and financial aid. We believe that it is very important that developing countries receive such assistance to build up their national reserves; such aid should be a consequence of the recognition by the international community of the need to build up such reserves.
Another point on which we laid emphasis in the overall question of food security is the question of aid to build and maintain reserves, aid, food aid, technical aid, financial aid. We believe that it is very important that developing countries receive such assistance to build up their national reserves, that is, it should be a consequence of the recognition by the international community of the need for building up such reserves. Also, we elaborated briefly in our statement before the Committee on World Food Security on the question of sub-targets.
Let me speak on them very briefly. Our idea is that while the Committee on World Food Security will in the future continue looking into the implementation of arrangements for food security, we will probably need benchmark estimates to see whether there is, in fact, reasonable progress in the direction of food security, for instance in terms of fertilizer and other inputs. As one final point, I would like to mention the emphasis that the developing countries lay on food production. For use it is an agreed fact - that was a point made by the delegate of Canada moments ago - that food security without food production is meaningless.
Real food security can only be ensured by food production and by increased food production in the developing countries. If I may add one point in this respect, it is that food security cannot -e based purely on grains. We developing countries rely on a number of products for our basic nutrition and our nutritional security requires attention to a number of different products. Therefore, more and more in the future, we shall have to look at food security not only in terms of grains but of other products as well.
Possibly, this is such an important question, that this Council may wish to give direction to the future deliberations of the Committee on World Food Security. In fact, the Committee on World Food Security has already suggested the need to look more into these other areas of production. I would like to conclude my statement, in which I tried to summarize the views of the Group of 77, by saying that we developing countries need to have assistance to stimulate our own production. We also need to have assistance in building up our own reserves.
De plus, nous ne devons pas perdre de. The Committee no doubt has made some progress but we have a long way to go. Examples of progress are a the Committee's tentative agreement to the Secretariat's estimated figures for the minimum safe level of carryover stocks to maintain world food security and b the Committee's agreement to the provision of assistance to developing countries in areas such as irrigation supplies, purchases of fertilizers and pesticides, of high-yielding varieties of seeds, storage facilities, development of agriculture and agricultural infrastructure in general and prevention of harvest and post-harvest losses.
No doubt such measures will contribute significantly to increasing agricultural production in developing countries. These measures are matters of common concern to developing countries and we urge their implementation in earnest since we firmly believe that the only real solution to the problem lies in improving food production in the developing world itself. My delegation feels particularly perturbed to note the decline in external assistance to agriculture and this trend must be reversed if the world is to be freed from hunger and malnutrition in the foreseeable future.
My delegation would also like to commend for favourable consideration in view of the ideal opportunity that the present cereal stocks provide to formulate international agreement on stocks. As regards the position of the Group of 77 my delegation fully supports their position.
We would further like to add that in view of the urgency in achieving a sould and fully coordinated system of world food security we do hope that the FAO Council would not only endorse the conclusion of the Committee on World Food Security but also accept the basic principles and approaches enumerated by the Group of 77 at the time of the first and second sessions of the Committee on World Food Security.
In particular we would like to stress the need for a speedy conclusion and negotiation of a new grains agreement, including provisions of reserve stocks and other economic provisions before the current International Wheat Agreement expires. This should facilitate the full implementation of the conditions in the international undertaking. As regards the minimum safe level of overall stocks on world food security, my delegation supports the position as outlined in paragraph 21 of the document under reference.
The Committee on World Food Security has examined this question in detail and has had the benefit of studies not only by the Secretariat but by some of the most prestigious institutions in the world that have all come to the same conclusion, namely that the minimum safe level of carryover stocks is 17 to 18 percent of world consumption of cereals. As regards the Global Information and Early Warning System, my delegation supports the findings of the Committee that the System has worked well and that the information supplied is of practical use to user governments.
I have so much respect for him. I watch him on tapes and it's just ridiculous how good he was compared to the guys he was playing against. He's a great guy and you don't even know it's Bobby Orr, the way he talks to you. Cherry, briefly his former coach in Boston, considers Orr the greatest hockey player who ever lived, noting that Orr was a complete all-around player who could skate, score, fight, and defend.
Orr's participation was criticized as a conflict-of-interest while he was a player's agent and he stopped coaching in the series. Organizers of the series convinced Orr to return to coaching in the series. One of the teams remained named 'Team Orr. On October 20, , Orr along with Milt Schmidt dropped the ceremonial puck at the Boston Bruins' first home game of the season. They became engaged on Christmas Day, , and married in September  at a 'secret' ceremony in Parry Sound.
Orr has been known to be fiercely loyal to former Bruin personnel and teammates. When Derek Sanderson had alcohol and prescription drug-abuse problems and wound up penniless, Orr spent his own money to ensure that Sanderson successfully completed rehab.

Decades later, Orr and Sanderson went into business together managing finances for hockey players. Orr also helped out Bruins trainer John Frosty Forristall, his roommate during his first years with the Bruins, who had just been fired from the Tampa Bay Lightning for alcoholism in Forristall's drinking put him on bad terms with his brother John, so he returned to Boston jobless and soon afterwards was diagnosed with brain cancer.
Orr took Forristall into his home for a year until he died at the age of Orr was a pallbearer at his funeral. Orr is also well known for his charitable works, although he kept mention of them out of the press. Former Eagle-Tribune writer Russ Conway noted of one occasion when Orr and Conway visited Boston Children's Hospital , with a box of programs, pennants, pucks, pictures and Boston memorabilia: "We went from room to room, Orr popping in, unannounced to visit the kids.
Some couldn't believe their eyes; sick as they were, they laughed in astonishment and delight. Bobby Orr! He talked and joked with every one of them, asking names, rubbing heads, giving everybody a little present from the box, leaving a stick, autographing everything in sight. Orr was involved in numerous charity fund raisers. Among other personal interests, Orr has a passion for fishing which he has had since childhood. In , Orr was invested as an officer in the Order of Canada.
The second is the Bobby Orr Community Centre, a multi-purpose entertainment facility. Orr thanked all who helped him in the four years he played in Oshawa: "I did a lot of growing up in Oshawa from ages 14 to 18 and I'll be forever grateful for those people who helped me in that time of my life. On May 10, , the fortieth anniversary of Orr scoring the game-winning goal against the St. The statue depicts Orr sprawled in mid-flight after scoring the goal.
The unveiling was attended by many of Orr's past teammates. Orr spoke at the unveiling: "This specific moment and time we celebrate with this statue is something we can all now nostalgically remember with fondness, together, each time we enter Boston Garden. To all of you, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. I'm honoured. Guys, thank you. Despite playing only twelve seasons and games of which only his first nine seasons, totalling games, were full seasons , and only playing 47 NHL games after his 27th birthday, Orr accomplished many records and achievements, a number of which still stand today, and are listed below.
