The COCOTECH (Permanent Panel on Coconut Technology) is the technical arm of the Community. It also meets once a year and sets the guidelines for the Community’s work program. It has also assumed a new dimension in becoming an open forum for researchers, processors, traders and policy makers to meet and exchange information relating to the coconut industry. (Some of the themes deliberated at recent Cocotech meetings were: Diversification, Processing and Marketing, Promoting Coconut Products in a Competitive Global Market; Sustainable Coconut Industry in the 21st Century; Health and Wealth from the Tree of Life; Towards Strategic R&D Agenda for a Globally Competitive Coconut Industry). New approaches to product diversification, value addition and marketing of coconut products, and strategies for enhancing the productivity and income of coconut farmers.
The Session of plenipotentiary in its annual Session approves the theme and venue of the COCOTECH meeting for the next year. From 2004, it has been decided to hold the COCOTECH once in two years.
