On Sunday, February 4, I will go to Oman for the first time. I look forward to it and hope to find people's interest in international cooperation in the authorization of pesticides. Like an other country, Oman has pests, it has scientists and it has internet access. That is all that it takes to participate in these efforts.

The only way for people to be part of their environment rather than thinking that we can control it, is by cooperating. Nature and Science do not have political borders, nor should the authorization process of products that we develop to ensure our safety. Let's make sure we use them in a beneficial way rather than in a dangerous way.
