    Welcome Message

      Dear Fellow APEC Members and Friends,
           On the conclusion of the 20th APEC Meeting in Istanbul, it is my honour to convey my deepest gratitude and appreciation to all of you for the time and effort you dedicated to make APEC 2019 Istanbul a great success.

    Without your strong support, it was impossible to organize this event which was conducted with participation of more than 35 countries. I hope you enjoyed your stay and benefited both scientifically and socially.

    I am very much privileged and honoured to serve as the President of our organization. A Big THANK YOU to all our past and new member societies for their great support and friendship. As the new President of APEC, I expect your continuous and sincere support to fulfil and achieve the goals of our organization.

    With 23 country member societies, the APEC family is expanding, showing more hope and optimism. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Egypt, our new member and partner.

    I have some thanks to express. I would like to thank Dr. Sanjay Miglani, the Immediate Past President due to his considerable work during his Presidency and Dr. Henry Kim for his great effort during his Secretaryship. I would also like to congratulate Dr Henry Kim due to his election as our President Elect. Our new Secretary is Tani-ishii Nobuyuki. I am sure that he will be very successful in his new position. And a big thank you to Dr. Ibrahim Abu Tahun, our Chairman of the Education Committee, I am sure he will move the scientific wing of the organization to the top level.

    The next APEC meeting is going to be held in Beirut, Lebanon. I believe it will be a further step for the better gains of our organization.
    Looking forward to seeing you in Beirut 2021.

    With warmest regards,


    Sincerely Yours,

    Dr. Mehmet Baybora Kayahan

     (Turkey)
     President APEC
