From Japan, 9 surgeons have been invited to give their lectures and video presentation in the congress and I am sure that many of surgeons from Saudi Arabia also will participate. The collaboration between these two countries in this congress is the first time and very much looking forward to it.

The seminar is designed to encourage learning, sharing of knowledge, communication and collaboration amongst the gastric and bariatric surgeons in 2 countries. Young surgeons and trainees can come to the meeting to exchange ideas and experiences with colleagues. I hope the young surgeons can learn a lot from your colleagues and peers, get inspired, and take home a lot of knowledge and keys to improve the care of your surgical practice.

Because we have an innovative technology and world-renowned expertise in Japan, it is our hope and expectation that this congress will help the surgeons in Saudi Arabia experience to get in touch with the world top class high level skills and information.
