Dear PAPS family,
It is my pleasure to welcome you all to this, our 57th meeting of PAPS, to be held in one of the most famous and intriguing cities in the world – Hong Kong. It is being held at a spectacular venue, close to many of Hong Kong’s finest attractions. This meeting will allow us to indulge in a banquet of scientific advance, networking with paediatric surgical colleagues from the Pacific rim and from around the world (many of whom are already close friends), and of course, our legendary social activities culminating in the banquet and songfest on the penultimate night. PAPS offers so much more than many other meetings, with the broad scope of its presentations, emphasis on global health, its quality keynote speakers and its inclusive and friendly culture. This is a meeting where you can encourage your newer colleagues and trainees to contribute in a safe and supportive environment, and your families to participate in a wonderful event. This is the “must attend” conference for 2024.
PAPS President 2024
