"It is my great pleasure to welcome all of you to Korea and the XXIII World Congress of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO). The world is now faced with challenges such as economic turbulence, scarce resources and environmental degradation caused by climate change. These are the tasks that all of us should tackle together."
"The French writer Chateaubriand has warned that “Forests precede civilizations and deserts follow them.” I hope that this World Congress will serve as an opportunity for us to discuss the role of forests that save our society and environment so that we will be able to continue green growth and leave green forests to future generations."
"This will be the third time in IUFRO’s history that an IUFRO World Congress, which is held every four to five years in various parts of the world, will be convened in Asia. With this Congress, participants from all nations will congregate in one of the most traditionally rich cultures and enjoyable destinations in Northeast Asia: the Republic of Korea."

"Make your plans now to attend the XXIII IUFRO WORLD CONGRESS, SEOUL, KOREA, AUGUST 23-28, 2010. The Congress Organizing Committee will do everything to ensure that you not only participate in an outstanding Congress, but also you experience a Korean adventure that will last a lifetime!"
