Dear All APVS members

I am very pleased to announce that the 9th Asian Pig Veterinary Society(APVS) Congress which will be held in Busan, Korea in August 25-28, 2019.

In 2003 the first APVS Congress kicked off in Seoul, Korea and in 2019, the event will come back to the country where APVS began. In this regard, the next APVS Congress in Korea will be our opportunity for a new beginning.

Asia stand as the center for the pig industry with more than 50% of the world pig population. And in the Asian pig industry, the role of pig veterinarians is not only growing but also getting very important to support the industry's sustainable improvement.

The APVS Congress 2019 in Korea will provide us with a new opportunity and solution to the need from the very dynamic pig industry. Korean pig veterinarians kindly invite you and promise the warmest welcome to everyone who will participate this wonderful event.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the 9th APVS in Busan in August 2019.
