The FAVA strategic plans for 2016-2020 have been implemented since 2016 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It is to set up strong networks and relationships with various international organizations to improve human and animal health in one health concept and welfare.
Antimicrobial resistance is global concerned and becoming an issue on livestock production as global agenda. The issue posed impact on human, animal health and international trade.

In order to promote collaboration and knowledge exchange among national, regional and international agencies and to discover the ways of addressing future challenges on antimicrobial resistance between ASEAN countries continuously. FAVA and VNU Exhibition Asia Pacific in coopration with Thai Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) and Research Unit in Microbial Food Safety and Antimicrobial Resistance (CUFSAR), private sectors will organize a one-day seminar on “Antimicrobial use in food animals: Perspectives, Policy, and Progress in Asia” on 16 March, 2017, 9.30 a.m.-3.00 p.m., VIV Asia 2017, BITEC Convention Center, Bangkok, Thailand.
