The first international symposium on biocontrol and biotechnology was held in Harbin, China on 2002. Then from 2004 to 2016, this symposium was held annually in Thailand, India, Philippines, Egypt, Russia and China. It has been an excellent platform for experts and researchers in related fields to carry out academic exchanges and cooperation promotion.
