Message from Chairman, Organising Committee

Dear Colleagues,

I am indeed most delighted to be given the opportunity to chair this important scientific meeting. Over the past years, I have participated in this meeting as both a faculty member and a participant. In the process, I have gained valuable knowledge and tips from many esteemed colleagues who have attended this annual meeting.

As organising chairman of this event, I hope to bring together a good programme that stimulates both our clinical knowledge and scientific intellect. This will be through a combination of interesting lectures and engaging “hands-on” workshops that will enrich our current knowledge and clinical skills. A holistic and interactive approach has been employed in planning the workshops in

which we shall discuss the latest techniques and the management of concurrent conditions or complications. We have also included a video symposium in robotics assisted colorectal surgery, as well as LIFT, both techniques which are new and offer huge potential for growth in the region. Interesting colorectal cases will also be discussed by an expert panel in the Challenging Case Discussion segment of this meeting, in which our participants could gain valuable insights in the management of certain colorectal conditions. This annual meeting will provide the perfect forum for both faculty and participants to interact and possibly discuss future collaborations.

On behalf of the organising committee, I would like to extend a warm invitation to all our colleagues to join us at this event.

The committee looks forward to meeting you in Singapore.
