Welcome Message from APDWF

Dear Colleagues and Friends:




On behalf of APDWF (Asian Pacific Digestive Week Federation), I would like to announce that the APDW 2022 will be held in a hybrid format in the historical and cultural city of Xi’an, China, from November 17-20, 2022, after overcoming many uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. I am honored to invite you from all over the world to attend this academic feast.


The APDW 2022 will take place jointly with the 22nd Congress of Gastroenterology China (CGC2022) as a hybrid event with an integrated format of on-site delegates meetings and online virtual meetings. A large panel of renowned experts within and outside the Asian-Pacific region will share their latest innovations and unique experience in the field of hepatology, gastroenterology, endoscopy, and gastrointestinal surgery, from basic research to clinical management. The APDW 2022 remains committing to promoting the exchange of the Asian-Pacific experience in digestive diseases and expanding continued education in the Asian-Pacific digestive community. We encourage more participation of our fellow colleagues to share scientific discoveries and advance education at this annual APDW congress.


As one of the oldest cities in Chinses history, Xi’an is known for its cultural essences, historical details, natural settings, and featured foods. We wish the APDW 2022 to be productive and successful in Xi’an.


I am looking forward to seeing you at the APDW 2022.


Daiming Fan

President, Asian Pacific Digestive Week Federation
