Then in Jeju, Korea, in October, 2011、when WSAVA was held, the same subject was discussed within the similar members. As a result, several members would make a draft on regulations and others of Asian Board of Veterinary Specialties, which would be further discussed. However one of the main members has had sick and the draft has not yet been made by the time of this meeting in Bogor. Therefore we will wait for a while to further discuss on this issue after the draft will be made.
