Excerpt from U. S. Participation in the Food and Agriculture Organization: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on International Security, International Organizations and Human Rights of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives, One Hundred Third Congress, First Session, ... September 23, 1993
Let me state at the outset that the value of fao's work is not at question. The organization has a proven track record. Member ship in faq brings significant benefits to the us. Agricultural community and to the individual consumer. What is at issue is the politicization of the fao agenda that has often led to polarization among its members. And this clearly hampers the effectiveness of the organization.
I also have some serious questions about the funding of various agencies, not just fao. And I will ask Secretary Bennet later on about the expected timing of administration proposals for changing funding ratios. Unless these are forthcoming soon, we will take the initiative in making recommendations along those lines.
