VII International Veterinary Congress shall take place in Ufa, the capital city of the Republic of Bashkortostan. The Republic is Russia's largest dairy and fermented mare's milk producer, as well as the land of the legendary Bashkirian honey boasting a centuries-long history. Bashkortostan has been lauded as one of the regions free from major animal diseases.
Poised between Europe and Asia, Ufa became the crossroads of Russia, where airline and terrestrial routes converge, and investable assets attract capital from around the country and beyond. Innovatory technologies in Ufa exist alongside ancient Bashkir traditions and culture. The city offers a perfect echo to the theme of the upcoming congress. Harmony of the local and global, with tradition and innovation complementing each other, lies at the root of the 'One world – one health' concept, which to this day remains paramount to human and animal welfare worldwide.
The conferences, panel discussions and exhibition shall take place at the Congress Hall, a world-class venue that has hosted over thirty Russian and international forums, including SCO and BRICS summits in 2015.
