The Conference of the OIE Regional Commissions is the OIE institutional meetings with the purpose to examine animal health, animal welfare and animal production food safety issues within the Region
Following the kind offer of the Government of Thailand during the 31st Conference of the OIE Regional Commission for Asia, the Far East and Oceania held in Japan in September 2019, the 32nd Conference of the OIE Regional Commission for Asia, the Far East and Oceania was initially planned to take place in Thailand in September 2021. However, due to the persistence of the sensitive sanitary situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis as well as the OIE Council decision, following its extraordinary meeting held in June 2020, to adapt planned Regional Conferences into a virtual format, it was decided to also keep this Conference virtual. Thus, the 32nd Conference of the OIE Regional Commission for Asia, the Far East and Oceania was held on 15 and 16 September 2021 by videoconference (via Zoom).
The thirty-six Members of the OIE Regional Commission for AFEO were invited to participate in this Conference as well as international and regional organisations involved in animal and veterinary public health activities.
A total of 131 participants from 32 members, 10 participants from 10 non-member countries and 11 participants from 9 international organisations joined the meeting with more than hundreds of views via Youtube.
