Dear Colleagues,

Let us thank God for the blessings, guidance, and the good health. It is a great pleasure to welcome you all to The 19th APAGE Annual Congress to be held in conjunction with 7th National Meeting of Indonesian Gynecological Endoscopy Society (IGES).

As a General Chairman of this congress, it is a great pleasure for us to provide presentations from world class endoscopists from all over the world, as well as in workshops conducted by experts in their fields.
Surabaya – the capital of the province of East Java – is Indonesia’s second largest city w ith a population of over 2.7 million. To Indonesians, it is known as ‘the city of heroes’ due to the importance of the Battle of Surabaya during the independence war period.

Surabaya now enjoys the reputation as being the cleanest city in Indonesia, equipped with every modern facility and offering a standard of accommodation to suit every taste and budget. Places of interest for the tourists include Kalimas harbor and Kampung Arab in the old tow n, The Mpu Tantular Museum, and the Surabaya Zoo – the largest zoo in South East Asia.

Hopefully, this congress will provide favorable occasion for valuable discussion on techniques, innovations, minimally invasive approaches, surgical skill, instrumentation and technology in surgery.
We are looking forward to see you in Surabaya.

Yours Sincerely,
Relly Y Primariawan
