China is the biggest country of pig farming and pork consumption in the world, with sharing more than 60% of inventory of pig and half of pork output of world total. Pork is the most favorite meat of the Chinese people, with 63% in total meat consumption in China.

So, we invite all members and delegates of IPVS to join us, to be united, to find out solutions swine diseases, and to help producers making profit by our efforts. We believe that IPVS 2018 and IPRRS Symposium will be the scientific feast on swine veterinary medicine for all delegates working on swine industry.
