Dear Colleagues,

Thejana WijeratneAs President of the Sri Lanka Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (SLSMBS) and President of the 7th IFSO-APC Meeting 2020, it is with great honor and pleasure that I invite you to Sri Lanka for the IFSO-APC Meeting 2020.

SLSMBS being a newly formed society still in its infancy, the IFSO-APC President Dr. Kazunori Kazama and the Executive Council of IFSO APC have entrusted us with this great task of holding the meeting and workshops in November 2020.

Our Society, together with the College of Surgeons of Sri Lanka, is determined to do the utmost best to make this congress a success and that all of you would benefit academically and enjoy the stay in this paradise island.

I would like to emphasize that Sri Lanka was ranked as the best tourist destination for year 2019 by “Lonely planet” and similar travel organizations, for its vast diversity, rich history, variety of attractions and unspoiled nature.

I am certain that it will be a memorable visit, especially for those who haven’t been to Sri Lanka before.

I hope to see you in a great conference followed by a fun filled vacation here in Sri Lanka soon.

firma thejana

President of IFSO-APC Meeting 2020
