Letter of Invitation from
The President of the International Association for the Plant Protection Sciences (IAPPS)
President
Dr. Hans R. HERREN

Kenya, April 2002

Dear prospective Congress attendee,

The 15th International Plant Protection Congress (15th IPPC) will be held in Beijing, China, during July 6-11,
2003. This Congress is not only the first international plant protection congress in the 21st Century, but also the
first to be sponsored by the International Association for Plant Protection Sciences (IAPPS) and organized by the
China Society of Plant Protection. Please allow me, on behalf of the IAPPS, to invite all plant protection scientists
from around the world and encourage them not to miss this important event. Plant protection issues are again at
the top of the agricultural production agenda, with needs for more food while at the same time assuring
sustainable, affordable and environmentally sound production and respecting the consumer’s needs and wishes.

The IAPPS is an independent umbrella organization established at the 14th IPPC in Jerusalem, Israel, in July 1999
to address important current issues in international plant protection. The Association promotes sustainable and
integrated and agro-ecosystems based approach to management of plant pests and diseases and weeds. The
Governing Body (GB) of IAPPS is supporting the Organizing Committee of the 15th IPPC to assure a successful
Congress in Beijing.

It is well known that China, the hosting country, has an ancient culture and agricultural history dating back
thousands of years. According to historical records, the earliest mention of insect control is found in the Zhou
Dynasty, ca. 3,000 years ago. The struggle between ancient Chinese farmers and harmful insect pests has
continued to the present day, however. In recent years, the Chinese government has paid great attention to modern
plant protection science and technology and has achieved notable success in controlling important insects and
diseases such as the migratory locust, armyworm and wheat rust, among others. China is proud of its achievement
in using 7 percent of the world’s cultivated land to feed 22 percent of the world’s population. Needless to say,
modern plant protection has played an important role in increasing agricultural production to this level.

In addition to its long history, China has a famously rich scenic beauty. Pre- and post-Congress tours can be
organized at very reasonable charges and I would like you to encourage you take advantage of this very unique
offer.

I looking forward to welcoming you in 2003.

Yours truly,




Dr. Hans R. Herren
President, IAPPS and Director General
The International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology

Letter of Invitation from the
Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the 15th IPPC
Prof. ZHOU Da-rong


On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I cordially invite you to participate in the 15th International
Plant Protection Congress in Beijing, China on July 6-11, 2003.

The venue of the meeting is the Beijing International Convention Centre (BICC). With wide range
of hotels, perfect congress facilities and every effort we can make, the Organizing Committee and
the China Society of Plant Protection will ensure you a scientifically informative congress and an
unforgettable stay in Beijing.

Beijing, the host city for the 15th IPPC, is the capital of the People's Republic of China, is well
known for its long history going back 3,000 years. As the ancient capital of five dynasties, it boasts
numerous historical relics and beautiful sceneries. Your visit to Beijing will be a wonderful
experience to know both the old and the new China.

The theme of the Congress is “The First Great Gathering for Plant Protection in the 21st Century
”. To meet the new challenge facing plant protection in the new millennium, the 15th IPPC will
focus on the current progress in the plant protection sciences and technology, and its foreseeable
development in the 21st Century.

I look forward to seeing you and your family in the year of 2003 and am sure that all of you will
have a very enjoyable and memorable experience to our beautiful and historical city of Beijing.

Yours sincerely,




Professor ZHOU Da-rong
Chairman of the Organizing Committee
The 15th International Plant Protection Congress

Invitation Letter from the
President of China Association for Science and Technology
Academician ZHOU Guang-zhao

On behalf of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), I have the great pleasure
to invite you to attend the 15th International Plant Protection Congress scheduled to take place in
Beijing in 2003. I strongly suggest you to make this event a priority in planning for next year.

China is the largest agricultural country in the world and it is frequently hit by natural disasters
caused by plant diseases, insect pests, weeds and rodents. Therefore, plant protection is one of the
key factors influencing sustainability of agricultural production. Chinese scientists have made
considerable progress in research and technology development in this area. China Society of Plant
Protection (CSPP), as a member society of CAST, is very active in advancing the cause of plant
protection in China and in its collaboration with international scientific communities.

I believe that the Congress will be of extensive professional interest to all participants and a
highlight of enhancing collaboration between Chinese and worldwide scientists. CAST will make
every effort to ensure that the foreign delegates come to China expediently and have an extremely
successful and enjoyable experience here.

I look forward to welcoming you in the coming year.

Yours faithfully,




ZHOU Guang-zhao
Academician
President of China Association for Science and Technology

Welcoming letter from
the Mayor of Beijing
Prof. LIU Qi


I, on behalf of 13 million Beijing citizens, warmly welcome you to attend the 15th International
Plant Protection Congress to be held in Beijing in 2003.

Beijing is the politic, culture and international communication centre of the People’s Republic of
China, Beijing is a cultural and historical city with over 3,000 years of its foundation, and more than
800 years being the civilized capital of the nation, many scenic and historical sites are scattered in
the city and its surrounding areas. With the fast economic development and great change with each
passing day of Beijing’s appearance, more and more international conferences had been held in
Beijing, and our guests from all over the world were all impressed with its achievements. With our
great enthusiasm, Beijing entertains thousands of friends and scientists from all over the world
every year. The Congress will be held at the well-equipped Beijing International Convention
Centre, I am sure that you will also feel the breath of “New Beijing, New Olympics” since Beijing
has won the bet for holding 2008 Olympic.

I believe that you will gain valuable scientific information during the congress, and your
participation in the Congress will make your Beijing visit a very beautiful anamnesis.


Beijing welcomes you.
