The INFOODS programme continues to strengthen and expand the network of people and organizations concerned with the development of an international network of food composition systems (described in the Food and Nutrition Bulletin, vol. 5 no. 2 [July 1983], p. 15). An organizational meeting of the Asian Regional Committee (ASIAFOODS) took place during the recent Fourth Asian Nutrition Congress, in Bankok, Thailand. Dr. Aree Valyasevi was chosen the interim Chairman of ASIAFOODS, with selection of members of the full committee still in progress. This regional committee joins EUROFOODS, LATINFOODS, MEDIFOODS, and NOAFOODS as a regional component of the evolving INFOODS network, with its secretariat located at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
