News release announcing that there is a great opportunity in the next 20 years for Australia and other food exporting countries "to do well while doing good". This news release was issued during the CGIAR's annual mid-term meeting held in Canberra, Australia, in May 1989. It reports that John W. Mellor, Director of the International Food Policy Research Institute will speak at a symposium "Agricultural Prospects and Challenges in Developing Countries", on June 2, 1989. He will propose a program of technological innovations to increase food productivity and a massive 20-year effort to bring roads, electricity, and other infrastructural developments to rural areas. He describes his proposal as a 20-20-20 program : US$ 20 billion a year to pay for infrastructure, 20 millions tons of food aid a year to provide the food for the labor force and a 20 year period.
