After 2 Years of COVID,
a Physical APAO Congress Returns to Malaysia

  Issue 1 - April 2022 

Dear friends and colleagues around the world,

As we slowly emerge from the pandemic of the last 2 years, I am pleased to inform you that the APAO 2023 Congress is due to go ahead as a full face to face conference at the acclaimed Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre next to the world famous Petronas Twin Towers. Malaysia is no stranger to hosting major international Ophthalmology conferences and we welcome you once again to our beautiful country for a long overdue full congress of the APAO. Our theme for this conference is “Reconnect and Collaborate” and I think that this is apt as we have been disconnected from each other for far too long.

Malaysia has fully opened its international borders on 1 April 2022 and is committed to hosting our international delegates in a safe and conducive matter with focus on ensuring the biological safety of our visitors. International flights from around the world to Malaysia are expected to increase in frequency in the coming months and I anticipate very few restrictions for fully vaccinated visitors to Malaysia.

The planning of the scientific and social program of the APAO Congress has already begun in full swing and all the ophthalmologists in Malaysia look forward to seeing you in February 2023. Please mark the dates in your diary for what promises to be an academically stimulating conference with lots of exciting social events and local tourism attractions for you and your families.

Yours sincerely

Dr Kenneth Fong
Congress President APAO 2023
Immediate Past President, Malaysian Society of Ophthalmology
