Welcome Address by WAAVP 2017 Chairperson

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to Kuala Lumpur for WAAVP 2017 – a city brimming with history, fantastic food and the melting pot of Asia!

As Chairperson of the WAAVP 2017 Local Organising Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to participate at the upcoming Conference, which will be held on 4 – 8 Sep 2017 at the world iconic Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Malaysia. This event is held every two years in major cities all over the world for the past 52 years and now it has come to Malaysia, with a backdrop of the famous PETRONAS Twin Towers, one of the world's most recognised landmarks.

The Local Organising Committee is proud to present a memorable scientific experience which includes plenary and keynote sessions, concurrent oral and rapid oral sessions, as well as poster presentations. In keeping with the Year of the Cockerel, we hope to put together a programme covering diseases of all animals Big and Small in Veterinary Parasitology. The registration fee and travel package is one of the most economical in the world!

We hope to forge a good network among veterinarians and scientists for a better world. While enjoying the rich scientific experience, we hope you will take some time to enjoy our beautiful Malaysia – Truly Asia.

Discover the amazing cuisines, great shopping 'till you drop' and friendly people. We wish you a delightful stay and hope you take home the very best of memories from this conference.

We look forward to seeing you in Kuala Lumpur in September, 2017. Keep a look out for our website at www.waavp2017kl.org

With warm wishes
Dr. Ramlan Bin Mohamed
WAAVP 2017 LOC Chairperson
