MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

I warmly invite you to the joint 19th AAAP Animal Science Congress and 57th PSAS Scientific Seminar and Annual Convention to be held in Cebu City, Philippines on 19 - 24 October 2020 with theme "Transcending boundaries towards food security and safety through science and technology innovations in animal production".The congress will be hosted by the PSAS.

The rapid increase in human population calls to a need to accelerate production, enhance productivity, and assure safety of animal source foods (ASF) through application of appropriate science and technology tools. As we transcend geographic and economic boundaries along the ASF value chains, regulatory system must also be

installed at all levels of production up until marketing. This congress aims to build partnerships and collaborations, serve as a platform to share and exchange current scientific and technical knowledge and interventions through plenary sessions, scientific paper and poster presentations, industry forums and field visits. The congress hopes to gather support from stakeholders to promote inclusive growth and development of the animal industry within the region.

The venue will be in Cebu City, the oldest city in the Philippines which is considered as the "Queen of the South". It is known for its historical tourist attractions, cultural diversity, charming and friendly people, stunning and prestine beaches and diving spots, world-class golf courses, and mouth watering delicacies like the famous "lechon". This congress hopes to offer you not just the technical knowledge and networking but exciting and memorable experiences from the activities. Please save the date and I hope to see you all during the 19th AAAP here in the Philippines.
