The Malaysian Society of Colorectal Surgeons (MSCRS) has won the bid to host the 20th Congress of Asia Pacific Federation of Coloproctology & 14th Asian Society of Stoma Rehabilitation Congress in March 2025 in Sabah.

Assisted by Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), the win by MSCRS will be pivotal in advancing breakthroughs in coloproctology and stoma care, strengthening Malaysia’s position as a leading business events hub in medical congresses.

Malaysia’s first recipient of Honorary Fellowship of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) and Immediate Past President of the Asia Pacific Federation of Coloproctology, Professor Dr. April Camilla Roslani said, “The APFCP Council has once again voted for Malaysia due to the strong and compelling bid presented by MSCRS with great support from the government. I am sure everyone is looking forward to having a face-to-face meeting back in 2025 in Malaysia.”

Dato’ Sri Abdul Khani Daud, CEO of MyCEB stressed the importance of the congress in not only networking amongst experts, but more importantly, in spurring innovation and research.

Added Dr. Luqman Mazlan, incoming president of MSCRS and organising chair, “I look forward to showcasing the advances in medical science and state-of-the-art facilities that Malaysia has to offer to overseas delegates. Winning a bid of an international congress is not easy and winning it for the second time is even more challenging.

“We will be proud to showcase Sabah as the destination for the congress which has world-class meeting facilities and a myriad of destinations for retreats.”
