This month, exchange visits have taken place between the IFRF in Livorno and the Organisations preparing Business Plans to host the IFRF starting in 2016. The aspirant new hosts will each make presentations of their plans for the IFRF to a special meeting of the IFRF’s Joint Committee to be held in Paris in December. A decision about relocation will be taken at that time.
A profile of GWI, one of the three aspirant organisations, is included in this email below
