    3. 3. Objectives • To establish cooperation and mutual exchange of information between the 5 regional anesthesia societies • With such cooperation we ensure the advancement and application of safety and reliability technology in all areas of regional techniques and the management of acute and chronic pain • To promote and ensure the transfer of relevant education and training standards in developed countries to the more deprived countries mainly in Africa and Asia.
    4. 4. Objectives (Contd) • With the cooperation of the five societies we are aiming to be the leader in regional anesthesia and acute and chronic pain medicine through innovations in education and research. It is in our interest to advance the science and practice of regional anesthesia and pain medicine worldwide • Finally, the ultimate goal of such a big event is to ensure the excellence in patient care utilizing the knowledge of the experts from the five continents and hence the welfare of the patients worldwide
