大家好

A very good afternoon and thank you for joining us at the Asia Pacific Occupational Therapy Symposium. On behalf of the Asia Pacific OT Regional Group, I bid everyone a very warm welcome. We have with us about 800 participants from 20 countries gathered here today, making this symposium a truly international one, beyond the Asia Pacific region.
 
The APOTRG was formally accepted as a regional group at the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) Council Meeting in 2006.
Last year was the 10th Anniversary of the formal recognition of the APOTRG, but our history extends beyond that. Informal meetings of the group have taken place since the late 1980s with regular formal meetings since 1995; when the 1st Asia Pacific OT Conference was held in Malaysia. The APOTC have since been held every four years: Taiwan (1999); Singapore (2003); Hong Kong (2007); Thailand (2011) and New Zealand (2015).
 
At the meeting in New Zealand in 2015, we decided to move the 7th APOTC to 2020, so that it will always be a 2 year interval from the WFOT Congress, which is also held every 4 years. Many members felt that a 5 year wait to 2020 was too long and we are very glad Taiwan decided to host this symposium as an interim.
 
The theme of this symposium “Contextualizing Occupational Therapy:Research, Practice and Education” is really apt as none of these should stand alone. Our practice should be evidence-based, and the educating of our future therapists would be based on these new knowledges and experiences.
 
The symposium will provide a platform for thought-leaders, academics,researchers and practitioners to share their ideas and views and inspire new practice standards in our field.
I want to encourage everyone to participate actively in the interesting discussions over the next few days and enjoy the networking. I wish everyone a successful and fruitful symposium.
See you next at the 7th APOTC in the Philippines. Thank you.
