Dear Colleagues and friends,

As President of IAGE, I would like to invite you and extend my warmest welcome to the Annual Conference of APAGE 2020 in Chennai, under the aegis of Indian Association of Gynaecological Endoscopists (IAGE)

I am sure that with Dr.Kurian Joseph at the helm of affairs, it will be a grand event. Dr.Krishnakumar who will be the sitting President is working hard alongside me to make this the most successful conference.

We are trying to incorporate many innovative ideas so as to cater both the spectrum of the delegates - those who are new and wish to explore Endoscopy and those who are doing routine Endoscopic surgeries and wish to advance their skills.

Nearly 200 Asia-Pacific members will be present for the conference here in India. Many renowned faculties from Asia Pacific will be coming as well and it is always great to exchange the knowledge and ideas along with the Eastern part of the continent, as they are known for their advanced surgical skills.

During this event our very own Dr.Prashant Mangeshikar will be taking over as a President of APAGE and it will be a proud moment for every Endoscopist of our country. We invite every Endoscopist to attend the inauguration to witness this grand installation.

The ambience at ITC Grand Chola, Chennai, is beautiful with breathtaking views. So apart from academic, one will also be able to have a vacation and can bring your family along. We request you to book your rooms at the earliest, so you will not be deprived of such a wonderful opportunity.

"Develop a Passion for Learning and You will never cease to Grow"

Yours Sincerely,
Dr.Sunita Tandulwadkar
President, IAGE 2019-20

Dear Colleagues and friends,

It is my great honour to welcome all of you to the 21st APAGE Annual Congress hosted by Indian Association of Gynaecological Endoscopists (IAGE). I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the organizing committee and its chairperson, Dr. Kurian Joseph and Dr. Sunita Tandulwadkar for their excellent organisation.

The mission of APAGE is to promote endoscopic techniques, knowledge and educational exchange between hospitals and countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Last year, we had held six workshops (two in Thailand, three in China, another one in Taiwan), three regional meetings (two in China, another one in Philippines), one regional congress in Singapore and several endorsed meetings all over the world.

APAGE has achieved great success as we received very positive feedback and reviews. We expect more academic conferences and look forward to your participation.

The Congress will bring together experts from all over the world to exchange skills and ideas, to learn from each other, to earn recognition for their outstanding performance. It is an exceptional opportunity to keep up to date on the latest development in gynecologic endoscopy.

I hope that this year’s conference will challenge and inspire you, rewarding new knowledge, collaborations, and friendships.

Best Regards
Chyi-Long Lee, M.D., Ph.D.
