News Walter MAZZITTI, nominated new EMWIS Steering Committee President

Walter MAZZITTI, was nominated new EMWIS Steering Committee President, during the brief meeting of the EMWIS Steering Committee that was held in Athens on 21 July 2008 at the occasion of the conference of the water directors of the Euro-Mediterranean and south-eastern European countries. The meeting was attended by representatives of Cyprus, Egypt, France, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the EMWIS Technical Unit support organizations (CEDEX and OIEau).

France formally handed over the Presidency of EMWIS Steering Committee to Italy. Jean-Claude VIAL, French Deputy water director thanked the countries for their active participation in EMWIS and their support since November 2005 when France took the Presidency in Rome. He reminded that this early transfer of Presidency is due to the fact that Pascal BERTEAUD who was the French water director and EMWIS Steering Committee President moved to a new position in the beginning of July and it was not making sense to appoint a new person for a few months.
