The message reads, in part:
“For more than 25 years, your Association has been carrying out multifaceted and highly important work to promote international research cooperation, exchange best practices in the diagnosis and treatment of various types of cancer, and train specialists, taking into account the most recent requirements and methods. Without a doubt, your Association’s congresses play a huge role in this. They are a permanent fixture in the calendar of key industry-based events. They have become a respected expert platform with a wide representation, where discussions take place on the essential and most relevant issues, determining trends and targets for the further development of oncology, radiology, genetics, and a number of related professional areas, and contributing to the search for the most effective methods of combating dangerous diseases and their prevention.
I would like to underscore that the congress delegates are highly qualified specialists, doctors, leaders and organisers, who have a rich background of mostly unique practice. You are aware of the achievements of your national health systems as well as their weak points. It is highly important that you are invariably focused on results, on solving specific problems through constant dialogue and consolidation of the medical community.
This proactive stance, the desire to practically contribute to protecting millions of people and their health deserve deep respect.”
