Welcome To ApsaseedWelcome to Asian Seed Congress 2022
The 27th Asian Seed Congress will be held at the Bangkok Convention Center in Bangkok, Thailand from the 14th to the 18th of November 2022. This Congress is co-organized by the Asia & Pacific Seed Alliance (APSA) and the Thai Seed Trade Association (THASTA) as the official National Organizing Committee.
“As an Executive Committee member of both APSA and THASTA, I have much confidence that this coming Congress will be all that we have been missing and more. The relationship between our two associations goes back decades, and each of our foundations are interlinked. Several THASTA EC members and advisors are also active APSA members, and Past Presidents.
“Suffice to say, the Executive Committees of APSA and THASTA have combined experience and expertise totalling many centuries if not millennia, and we can only hope to apply our wealth of knowledge, contacts and resources to meet and exceed all expectations, so as to deliver what we have all been yearning for these past few years, and welcoming you all back to Southeast Asia for an in-person, face-to-face Congress.”
“This will be our first physical Congress in post-Covid times, so we are looking forward to hosting a large crowd. Many things have to be worked out and I am confident that many of the challenges that have kept us virtual since the start of 2020 will have been addressed by then.
“I am confident in both of our Secretariats to make it happen, and I look forward to the process of putting everything together in the coming months.”
“Every time we host the Asian Seed Congress, Thailand has always given that “welcome home” feeling to all our delegates as it is home to APSA’s first Seed Congress.
“As the global seed community comes towards completely overcoming this covid-19 pandemic and reclaim the vibrancy of our industry, it is but fitting to hold it again in Thailand after not being able to do so for two succeeding years now.
|It is also timely that, as your host and the National Organizing Committee of Asian Seed Congress 2022, Thai Seed Trade Association is embarking on a more pro-active effort to support our national government’s goal of establishing Thailand as a regional seed hub.
“We are currently implementing our THASTA 5-Year Strategic Plan to facilitate effective seed movements and trading while promoting training and knowledge-sharing at local, regional, and global levels. Aside from giving you more details about this, we also want to update you on several significant seed industry developments happening in Thailand despite these most trying times.
“We hope to see you all again in Asian Seed Congress 2022 as we continue to make the global seed industry a major driving force that has seen us even through the worst of the pandemic. To all the delegates of this biggest regional event in the seed industry, we cannot wait to greet you all this time, “Welcome Back!”
