XV World Forestry Congress (2-6 May 2022)
Courtesy Visit to President of National Institute of Forest Science (NIFoS)

6 May 2022


The XV World Forestry Congress (XV WFC) was hosted by the Government of the Republic of Korea at the COEX Convention and Exhibition Center in Seoul. APAFRI involved as a co-organizer for five side events in this important event and also took this opportunity to pay a courtesy visit to Dr. Hyun Park, President of National Institute of Forest Science (NIFoS) which was one of the hosts of the XV WFC. As an active member institution of APAFRI since 1996, NIFoS has played an important role in supporting the activities of APAFRI technically as well as financially.

The aim of the visit was to discuss the collaboration between the two organisations and convey the appreciation for the continuous support and contribution of NIFoS to APAFRI in all these years. There was a fruitful discussion between the delegates in which ideas and recommendations were exchanged to strengthen the role of APAFRI in forestry research in Asia-Pacific Region.

APAFRI was represented by Dr. Ismail Parlan, Chair of APAFRI Executive Committee and Dr. Pin Kar Yong, APAFRI Executive Secretary. The meeting was also attended by Dr. Byungdoo Lee and Dr. Hyungsoon Choi from NIFoS, and Dr. Wan Mohd Shukri Wan Ahmad from Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM).
