Minutes of the International Agricultural Research Centers Directors record follow up of earlier discussion on tax issues and tax equalization and at this meeting it is agreed that centers will devise their own policy for consideration by their respective boards following the principle of equal take-home pay. Extensive discussions with a representative of the World Bank and CG Secretariat record matters of financing, TAC reviews and their scope, their acceptability to donors and implementation of recommendations. Other discussions cover activities under Title XII of US legislation, the structure of BIFAD and its board and ground rules for working with AID on policies and budget including their relationship with universities and with centers. The activities of the two committees, Joint Research Committee (JRC) and Joint Committee on Agricultural Development (JCAD) responsible to the BIFAD board are also covered in the minutes.
