The 18th Federation of Asian Veterinary Associations Congress (FAVA) was held from 28 to 30 November 2014 at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre in Singapore. It was hosted by the Singapore Veterinary Association and attracted many veterinarians from over 28 countries including Australia, Bhutan, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, Nepal, Turkey and the Philippines. All who attended benefited from the lively exchanges.
The congress featured keynote lectures, breakout sessions, interactive forum discussions and even hands-on workshops – Endoscopy and Echocardiography were held prior; Fish Medicine, Dentistry and Acupuncture were held after the conclusion of the congress.
The congress theme “The Rise of the Asian Veterinary Profession” offered delegates the opportunity to have access to quality education at both the graduate & undergraduate level. Various streams covering a wide range of topics including neurology, dentistry, pathology, disaster management, Animal Welfare etc. helped ensure something for just about everyone.
Additionally, the commercial exhibition which ran concurrently over 3 days attracted nineteen (19) exhibitors, and received strong support from industry partners including Merial, Zoetis, World Animal Protection and the World Organisation for Animal Health.
Delegates were also given opportunities to network with colleagues at the Welcome Reception on 28 November, the Gala Dinner on the 29 November and lastly during the closing ceremony on 30 November.
On behalf of the organising committee, thank you for spending a memorable few days with us and we look forward to seeing you in 2016 at the 19th FAVA Congress in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
