President's Message

Welcome message from the APOC President

Dear all,

The year 2020 is a very special year for us. You may spend more time together with your family and less international travels. Of course, more orchid work at home.

There should be WOC 19th held in this March 2021, but due to COVID-19, it was postponed. I believe the next APOC in Singapore will be well-organized and we can see each other in that time.

Keep yourself healthy and we will meet soon.
