The conference was a wonderful experience. Precisely designed for the needs of a hepatology practitioner, the programme was balancing the basics and relevant advances. Preceptorship programme was very good and I wish the time duration for the case based discussion can be extended further. Looking forward to another great conference in 2019

This well-organized program demonstrated useful insights on both eastern and western perspective as exemplified by relevant arguments and guideline presentations. The informative discussions on difficult real-life cases were all thoroughly answered by the distinguished global experts.
