"It was indeed a pleasure for me to attend the 6th Irradiation Forum. It has been very informative for me and I had the opportunity of meeting, discussing and learning from the other participant's experience with irradiation as a phytosanitary treatment. This Forum was particularly important for me given that the NPPO of Mauritius is also envisaging the setting up of an irradiation facility for phytosanitary treatment. Hope that I will have the opportunity of participating in future Forums."

"Thank you very much, Anu, for inviting me to speak at the Forum – it was an excellent opportunity for me to learn more about the Industry concerns and new technologies, and to interact face-to-face with our Stakeholders.  I think you did a superb job arranging for and carrying out this forum – very smooth and well-organized!

Thanks again and I hope to stay in touch and continue to be involved with irradiation technology for phyto treatments."
