Welcome Address by the EASL
Following the success of the 2016 edition of the Singapore Hepatitis Conference, we are extremely proud to have the opportunity to return to this important meeting in 2017 to organize a third edition of the BEST of EASL series.
While EASL continues to experience growth in delegate participation at the International Liver Congress™, too many stakeholders are still not able to attend this Congress, as well as other educational initiatives organized throughout the year by EASL.
To respond to this challenge, the BEST of EASL condenses the most cutting-edge science and education from our society into one program, which is delivered in conjunction with key top regional meetings across the world.
We hope this initiative, the first Asian edition of which took place a year ago actually at this conference, will provide a renewed opportunity for exciting scientific exchange and the development and renewal of meaningful interactions.
We look forward to meeting you at the Singapore Hepatology Conference.
