GPC Interview with Huseyin Arslan, GPC President (2015-19)

Huseyin Arslan's presidency focused in two main areas: the sharing of synergy with global organizations and government agencies to raise awareness about the benefits of pulses for people and for the planet; and the providing of tools to enhance clarity and predictability in global trade. 

The outcome of this dual approach can be seen in three milestones: the declaration of World Pulses Day by the United Nations General Assembly in December, 2018; the Colombo Accord, which was signed by GPC National Associations during the 2018 GPC Conference; and the launch of the GPC Pulses Contract.
