Hello, I am Dr. Beth Miller, the president of the International Goat Association, a global organization of scientists, farmers and development experts dedicated to improved human welfare through a more organized goat sector. On behalf of our Board of Directors, and all of our members, I want our Chinese colleagues to know that we stand with you in solidarity during this difficult time of the COVID19 outbreak.
Please know that your IGA friends and colleagues from around the word eagerly await the end of the outbreak, and the development of new tools for prevention and treatment, both in China and the other countries where new cases are being discovered such as Italy, Korea and Iran. Now more than ever, we can see the need for global cooperation so our countries and our families can thrive.
We commend the Chinese people on your patience and strength while facing this unprecedented situation. I look forward to returning to a time with safe and easy travel within and between countries. May you all enjoy good health and a quick return to a normal life, and working to advance goat health and production!
