The 3rd International Symposium on Environment, Natural Resources and Ecological Conservation: Sustainable High-Output Agricultural Systems – East Asia and North America Experiences (http://isenrec2016.org/ 注：点击这里可以进入温哥华会议链接) successfully completed at Vancouver, Canada.
加拿大农业与农业食品部科研发展与技术部副主任Dr. Bruce McArthur指出：
“A number of us had the opportunity to attend the 3rd International Symposium on Environment and Development: Sustainable High-output Agricultural Systems – East Asia and North America Experiences. Dr. Hong Wang was a co-organizer of this symposium, which was held for the first time in North America this year, bringing researchers from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong together with those from Canada.
Both Dr. Brian McConkey and Dr. Alan Iwaasa were keynote speakers and session co-chairs. Sustainability in agriculture is increasingly topical and it was exciting to see the similarities and differences between how sustainability is handled on the two sides of the Pacific Ocean. Equally exciting was finding out about projects being undertaken by other researchers within AAFC within this domain. In a few cases the new collaborations that were formed were not across the ocean, but across research centres. I’m certain that going forward, many of those who attended the lectures will be forming new collaborations on new projects. All of this collaboration boils down to more opportunities, more projects and eventually more work for support staff. The glory goes to the researchers, the work to the techs – or at least that is what my unit thought about new collaborations” (The Rambler A U G U S T 1 9 , 2 0 1 6).
