On behalf of the Asia-Pacific Society of Thyroid Surgery (APTS), it is my pleasure and privilege to invite all of you to attend the 4th Congress of APTS that will be held on 23rd-26th March 2023, in Kochi, India.
It is exciting to see the rapid growth of APTS with increasing numbers of active members up to 1,140 doctors from 40 countries. I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the active involvement and interaction of all APTS members. The 4th Congress of the APTS will cover all aspects of thyroid and parathyroid disorders. I do believe that our gathering in Kochi will be a great opportunity to learn the most cutting-edge knowledge and techniques, share experiences with each other, and strengthen our friendships.
Kochi is a major port city on the south-west coast of India bordering the Laccadive Sea, and is widely referred to as the financial and commercial capital of Kerala. Kochi has a special lagoon terrain, excellent natural harbor and geographical location, and had been named by National Geographic as "One of the world's top 10 places to visit" and "One of the 50 places to visit in life". The beautifulcity is very worthwhile for us to take a vacation and relax.
Your strong support and active participation must make the Congress successful.
I am very much looking forward to seeing you in Kochi, India!
