The T.I.C. has learned today that due to recent developments with respect to the coronavirus (Covid-19) and in order to ensure the health and safety of any guests to the OECD, the OECD leadership has decided to cancel the upcoming Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains.
The OECD stated that it "is dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of its staff and visitors. Our crisis management team has been monitoring the situation closely, and has advised on extra precautionary measures to avoid unnecessary risk of transmission or quarantine. We will discuss alternative solutions but plan to hold a series of dedicated workshops and virtual meetings on Forum topics throughout the year. We will keep you informed and apologize for any inconvenience."
