As the Governor of the Eastern Province, it has always been my pleasure to champion such scientific conferences to promote state-of-the-art knowledge in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

It is through such gatherings that we can sustain transfer of knowledge between intellectual bodies around the world. The health and well-being of the community only gains from such functions as healthy individuals are able to add value to society.

The Saudi Diabetes & Endocrine Association has always played an important role to fulfill its mission and vision along the above-stated message, and it continues to build upon previous conferences successfully.

I hope that this year's collaboration with the Endocrine Society is the beginning of a new era to build upon.

I wish everyone all the best during this three-day event, and I welcome you all to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
