Welcome Address

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite all of you to the Malaysian Thoracic Society Annual Congress 2018, which will be held at Zenith Hotel, Kuantan from 12th to 15th July 2018.

It is an exciting time in Respiratory Medicine as there are a lot of new developments and advances in this field. With this in mind, we have put together a programme encompassing a wide variety of interesting topics.

We will start with three interesting workshops on pulmonary infections, interstitial lung diseases and difficult paediatric airway followed by two and half day Congress.

Esteemed speakers from the country and abroad have been invited to share their knowledge in various topics from orphan lung diseases, interventional pulmonology, and pulmonary rehabilitation to sleep disordered breathing and pleural diseases, not forgetting the common diseases, such as obstructive lung diseases, thoracic malignancy and respiratory infections. The Congress programme has been tailored to provide ample opportunities for delegates to network as well as visit the exhibition to explore the latest products and services.
Beside this, I wish you can take some time off before or after the Congress, to visit nice beaches, hills, caves, rivers and museums around Kuantan. And remember to try our special durian, named “hijau” and a lot of other delicious local cuisine.

We thank you for your participation and look forward to seeing you in this important gathering in Kuantan.

Prof. How Soon Hin

Organising Chairman
