It is a great honor and privilege for me to celebrate 5oth Anniversary of Myanmar Orthopaedic Society and have an opportunity to host the 38th ASEAN Orthopaedic Association Congress in Myanmar . Myanmar has been participated as an active member country in the region and closely collaborated with regional countries in wide range of medical field including orthopaedics and other medical specialities . We strongly believe that our inner strength and professional integrity is depend on mutual understanding , friendship and sharing each other without discrimination as one country in ASEAN community. This reflect the congress theme for this year as the title named as “ Future Orthopaedics in One ASEAN Community “. This theme will motivate all of us for future landscape of ASEAN Orthopaedic Profession and Road map for direction . Common ASEAN Orthopaedic residential curriculum will be the first move towards the goal .
The academic committee is trying to invite and welcome to all experts in orthopaedic specialities from the regional countries to involve and share their knowledge and experiences so that every challenges and opinion will be of ASEAN perspective and ownership . We are also hoping that more international participants will join the meeting and enjoy with ASEAN culture and hospitality .
