It is my immense pleasure to welcome you to the 30th International Congress of the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Malaysia, at the Setia SPICE Convention Centre, in this beautiful state of Pulau Pinang, Malaysia.
The theme for this year’s congress is Acquire, Appraise, Accomplish. We hope the congress will be a platform for you to acquire knowledge and skills, appraise the evidence presented, and accomplish what you have set out to do regarding professional capability and development.
The highlight of any congress without doubt is its scientific programme. For this we have curated a scientific programme that is comprehensive, current, and critical to our work in women’s health. We have invited eminent speakers who are all experts in their respective fields, some of whom will be with us in Penang, while others will deliver their lectures on the online platform. You are most welcome to meet these experts, have further discussions, and establish networks.
Another highlight of the congress is the free communications, where good scientific work, done both locally and abroad, will be displayed. We are thankful for our colleagues who will share their work via these sessions and we hope it will trigger interest in others, and lead to more excellent work being done in our field.
Penang is a beautiful state, with beautiful beaches, beautiful, friendly people, and the most sumptuous food. Do not forget that George Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that features traditional architecture as well as a multitude of heritage trades and arts. Please make time to go around Penang and enjoy what it has to offer.
Thank you again for attending and we hope you will have a great time at this congress.
