WELCOME FROM THE 2023 CHAIRS

On behalf of the organizing committee, it’s our pleasure to invite you to attend the 13th APFSSH, 9th APFSHT & 8th APWA, taking place 31 May to 3 June 2023. For the first time, we are combining both significant meetings for hand and wrist surgeons and therapists in one major event.

Our theme for the 2023 meeting is “Diverse & Inclusive”. We aim to bring together colleagues not just within the Asia Pacific region, but from all over the world. We hope that international travel restrictions will be relaxed by then and participants can once again look forward to the warmth of personal exchanges in physical meeting.

We promise an exhilarating and multi-faceted scientific program where there will be exciting exchanges between experts in their respective subspecialties from different parts of the world.

Singapore has a strong legacy of successfully attracting delegate nations from around the region and beyond. We are proud to showcase our vibrant multicultural and multiethnic communities, historical Chinatown, Little India and Arab street, themed attractions in Sentosa, Marina Bay, Changi Jewel, and the many well preserved parks and nature reserves including Singapore Botanical Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Let’s meet in Singapore in 2023 to build new ties and learn from one another!

Sincerely,

Mark Puhaindran
